A lunchtime concert, with world-famous trumpeter Crispian Steele Perkins, was enjoyed at St Martin’s Church then the Witcham village fete was held at the green.

There was also traditional cream teas, a bottle tombola, stalls and entertainment for all the family.

A scarecrow competition had the theme Royal Family and there was also a photographic competition with two categories for children and adults.

Musical fun came in the shape of a céilidh in the village hall performed by the Ivel Valley Band and on Sunday a come and sing event was held in St Martin’s Church to music with a Royal theme to celebrate the Queen’s 90th birthday.
