An estimated 1,000 people were attracted to the popular event last Thursday (May 30).

As usual the village and the churchyard was filled with stalls, games and music from Gittisham Hall Jazz Band.

Blessed with 'perfect weather' organisers have announced the event raised more than £10,000 for the first time in the event's 47 year history.

More than £8,000 of the total will be donated to the village church and chosen charities, Parkinsons Disease UK East Devon branch, Sid Valley Memory Cafe-Admiral Nurse Appeal, Sidmouth Surf Life Saving Club, Sid Valley Food Bank, Sid Vale and Eastern Devon Talking Newspaper Association.
