Among a host of bygones displays in village hall were working carnival organs, vintage models, antique petrol cans and other collectables.

Outside meanwhile, there were a host of classic cars and tractors and displays of vintage farm machinery.

There were also a handful of stationary engines, a spinning wheel, accordions and a rare trench rammer.

The event, which has been running for more than 20 years, is held to raise funds for emergency medical charity Magpas and this year’s celebration brought into more than £1,700. The extravaganza has raised more than £20,000 for Magpas since it was launched.
