Hundreds turned out to Sidbury Village Fete to enjoy a dog show, stalls galore and yummy treats, helping to raise a whopping £4,000.
The money made from the event, which took place on Saturday, will be split between St Giles’ Church and Sidbury Primary School.
Around 600 fete-goers enjoyed browsing 25 stalls, which featured everything from children’s games, books, clothes and gifts to plants, a human fruit machine, face painting, big bottles, a tombola and a barbecue.
A few police officers also made an appearance with their speed cameras and invited people to test how quickly they could move, while the WI provided refreshments in the village hall.
Monique Pike, a fete treasurer, said: “It was amazing for a village fete… There was great community spirit.”
