Parishioners went totally tropical during a fun evening at St Barnabas Church in Hightown.

The church held a Jamaican evening with lots of Caribbean-style food, silly games and quizzes.

Points were awarded for those teams who knocked down a coconut, knocked over skittles, attempted the “sultana” game, and answered correctly questions about Jamaica and Bob Marley.

A spokeswoman for the church said: “No-one questioned the scoring, but the fact that the vicar was on the winning team was considered by some to be somewhat dubious!”
