A parish church has hailed the "great success" of an event which raised £1,350 as a community came together in the sunshine.
Thorpe St Andrew Parish Church's gardens were the setting as a pop-up plant sale was held last Saturday.
After Covid restrictions had meant a large fete could not go ahead at the Yarmouth Road venue, church members arranged a plant sale instead.
The Revd James Stewart said: "We are very blessed to have a beautiful garden by the river and we like to share it with our community as often as we can.
"The Covid-19 pandemic has given people the opportunity to appreciate green spaces and beautiful plants, so a plant sale on World Environment Day seemed very appropriate.
"Everyone had a very happy time in the sunshine."
The £1,350 raised will be used for the work of mission and ministry in Thorpe, and to pay for items for the church garden.
