An Easter-themed fair at Rugby Baptist Church – complete with a trio of lambs – delighted residents and raised more than £800 for essential repairs to the beautiful building.

The fair, which took place on Saturday April 9, brought the church community together for Easter the first time since the end of lockdown.

The sales of cakes, jams, books, candyfloss and popcorn, plants, Easter eggs and the opportunity to enjoy a cream tea pleased many.

Crowds enjoying the Fete in the church hall.

But the biggest hit of the fair proved to be the chance to meet three Spring lambs from a nearby farm.

The trio of lambs named Bruno, Archie and Megan were unconcerned by the many children who flocked to see them, and appear to have enjoyed their visit to the town centre.
