Beer Regatta comes to a close this evening, following a jam-packed week of festivities.

Now in its 10th year, the event is a firm favourite with villagers and locals, with large numbers attending the Sunday fun day.

Organisers paid tribute to one of the village’s biggest characters, Robbie Driver, who died earlier this year, by holding a race in his name.

Other popular events included barrel-rolling and regatta day, which featured the presentation of the cups, and a grand firework extravaganza.

The week will end today (Friday) with Disco al Fresco and other bands at the Dolphin Hotel.
