Hundreds of people braved the showers to enjoy a fun-filled day that featured craft stalls, trade stands, races, a dog show and a tug-of-war.

A fun fair and face painters kept the children entertained while a beer and cider tent proved as popular as ever.

Money raised at the event will be donated to local charities.

A spokesman for the event said: “Thanks to everyone who helped and stuck with us through the rain. Also massive thanks for all the stall holders and of course all of the visitors.
