The week commenced on Saturday (August 10) and featured many popular events including barrel rolling in the main street, children's activities and bingo.

On Thursday (August 15) the sun shone for the annual Regatta Day, which attracts hundreds of visitors for a day of fun.

During the day, the children and adults fancy dress competition and raft race took place.

Among the decorated rafts competing in the event were the three little pigs, the Teletubbies, a Ferris wheel and Beer Albion Football Club celebrating its 100th birthday.
