GLORIOUS weather meant bumper crowds for Tipton St John's popular Easter Fete on Saturday.

The event, held on the village's playing fields, saw hundreds of residents and visitors enjoy a variety of entertainment in the Bank-Holiday sunshine.

Young and old enjoyed a traditional Punch & Judy show, as well as the chance to get to grips with fluffy bunnies and even snakes.

Other highlights included stalls, cream teas, a magician and pony rides.
