Transport was provided to help people to make the short journey off the edge of the Isle of Ely so that they could find out what was on offer down in Sutton Gault.

They were treated to a wide range of activities provided by the Sutton Feast Committee and other voluntary community groups.

There were a huge number of vintage vehicles on display as well as lots of themed activities, centred on the 75th anniversary of D-Day.

Hundreds wandered up onto the bridge over the New Bedford River for the annual village duck race.
