One of East Cambridgeshire’s smallest villages put on one of its largest events of the year – a fun and sports day at the playing field.
Organised by the village hall committee, the fun day brought together young and old for a quintessentially English day out.
And the villagers and visitors loved it.
The day included such delights as hoola hoops, egg and spoon races, welly throwing and sack racing.
For the children it was fun watching their parents stumble their way down the course – and of course the shrieks of laughter accompanied egg and spoon racing.

“A massive thank you to everyone who came along to our family fun sports day,” said a hall spokesman.
