A celebration to mark the 150th anniversary of a Wisbech Church saw dozens gather to share their memories.
St Augustine's Church, in Lynn Road, held a blessing on the lawn with Canon Matthew Bradbury and the Lord Vice Lieutenant of Cambridgeshire Richard Barnwell on Sunday (May 11).
Parishioners past and present gathered - including David and Judy Hodgson who were married at the church 45 years ago.
An exhibition showing the church through the years was also on display.
A post by the friends group on social media read: "Such a glorious day with friends and families coming from all over the country to celebrate 150 years.

St Augustine's was constructed on May 11 1868 in the Gothic style at a cost of £3,320.
It played a vital part in transforming the slum areas of the town by bringing people together to worship.
In recent years both the church roof and organ have been extensively repaired.
