Steve Larkin, chairman of the fete committee, said: “The community always support us – rain or shine.”

“We started this fete to create a community spirit in the village after losing the pub and the community centre.”

Displays by the Waggy Tails Dog Agility Team and the East Coast Liners proved popular with the crowd - as did the more traditional bouncy castle and raffle.

Mr Larkin added: “I want to say thank you to each member of the fete committee, the army cadets and all the volunteers.
