Villagers have begun an anniversary year for their parish church by raising hundreds of pounds towards the ongoing maintenance of the building.
Hundreds of visitors attended a book sale, cream teas and an Easter egg hunt at the St Mary Magdalene Church in Magdalen on Saturday.
Church warden Alan Sherfield said 27 youngsters had taken part in the egg hunt.
He added: “It all went very well indeed with about £350 raised. A lot of people stayed for teas after. We had a friendly and very welcoming atmosphere.”
The event marked the start of a celebratory year for the church, which this year marks 670 years since the village was granted a charter for a church by King Edward III in 1346.
The money raised at the weekend will be put towards towards the restoration of a George III coat of arms and general maintenance of the medieval church building.
The anniversary will be celebrated further at a charter fair in the church grounds on July 23, the day after St Mary Magdalene Day.
