“The winner of the best layout competition, voted for by the public, was Fen End Pit. A very deserving winner - for a number of reasons. David was so, so happy. A great result.

“And to cap it all, we got a very low level flypast by the Lancaster Bomber over Ely College at 5.05pm as we were packing up the show.
