“We continued to get a great turn out,” said Brightwalton community coordinator, Katherine Moore.

“The fete brings out the best of our beautiful village and once again, it was a great day.

“The champagne moment this year must go to the dog show team who, undeterred when the music didn't work for the dog musical sit competition, persuaded the ice cream man to use the van music instead.”

The Friends of Brightwalton School and Brightwalton Preschool.

Teas, cakes, jams and a mobile bar were also supplied throughout the day.
