CHRISTENING gowns and memorabilia dating back to the Victorian age were on display at St Catherine's Church in Litlington at the weekend.

Residents contributed about 20 gowns, including a Christening dress which was given to a family in the area by Winston Churchill's wife.

Outside, villagers flocked to the annual fete where there were traditional stalls, games, and a country dancing demonstration by pupils of Steeple Morden Primary School.

The fete raised £1,000 for the church fund.

The church will be holding a barn dance in the village hall on Saturday for the tower appeal.

There will be a live band. Tickets are £8 adults, £4 children. They are available from Sue by calling 01763 852974 or Ann on 01763 247523.
