Taking place on Abbey Green, the fete featured a host of stalls from community groups and charities, along with performances by the Urban Dance Academy and the Upwood Ukulele Group.

The fair took place on Saturday and was opened by Lady De Ramsey, along with the event’s dog show - which had a record number of entries this year.

Richard Hyde, committee member, said: “There was no end of stalls and entertainment for everyone to enjoy, it was great fun.”
