GOOD quality arts and crafts attracted visitors to St Nicholas Church in Bramber.
The annual exhibition of arts and crafts over the bank holiday weekend saw paintings, prints, photography, cards, wood-turned objects and jewellery on display.
There was a steady stream of visitors for most of the weekend but heavy rain on the Monday affected numbers.
Organiser Jon Corballis said: “There were good sales and visitor numbers. Reasonable weather held out until Monday, when only in the afternoon did it deter visitors, so that numbers and sales were marginally down on last year.
“But it attracted many favourable comments and raised much-needed funding for the fabric of our local churches.
“Sales of arts and crafts were about the £800 mark and sales of cakes and teas usually match this.”
He said it had once again been an exhibition of quality and variety, helping to support the 3bs Parish of Upper Beeding, Bramber and Botolphs.
The final total would not be known until a later date.
