The Ramsey Rural Museum and the Ramsey 1940s committee jointly hosted the event, which saw locals came together to enjoy a host of fen-themed activities and exhibits.

The event saw visitors enjoy plenty of music and dancing at the 1940s camp, and there were also arena events including dog displays and marching bands and stalls, where charities and members of the community pitched in to help run the event.

The fair was opened by the mayor of Ramsey, Councillor Doug McIlwain, who was re-elected as the mayor following a unanimous vote at Ramsey Town Council meeting last week. The new deputy mayor of Ramsey, Councillor Steve Corney was also in attendance.

Organisers said profits from the event would be donated to Magpas Air Ambulance.
