There was fun in the sun as the community turned out to enjoy a family day out at Ottery Parish Church’s annual summer fair.

Organisers arranged a packed day of events and stalls in the surroundings of the stunning Cadhay House and gardens.

The entertainment included a birds of prey display and musical performances. Visitors also got to enjoy tours of the Tudor house, browsing a range of stalls, Devonshire cream teas and the much-anticipated grand draw.

All profits from the day went towards the upkeep of the church.

The Reverend Stephen Weston said: “We had a really good day and that made it worth it.

“It is such a beautiful setting it draws people in to come and see.

“The steel band were fantastic.”

Michael Moore, chairman of the fair committee, said: “It went very well, we were blessed with a nice day.

“It was very successful and there were a lot of people there which is more important to making money.”
