A record turnout of 4,000 people enjoyed the return of Brampton’s Village Fete with singing, dancing – and even a fun dog show.
Revellers packed out the village green on Saturday afternoon (July 24) to browse more than 30 stalls of arts, crafts, flowers and local produce.
Music from a swing jive band got everyone in the mood for dancing while children took part in fun races and a tug-of-war.
Food for the event was provided by the Hare on the Green pub.
Bryan Swain helped organise the event as part of the Brampton Events Team - who work tirelessly throughout the year to make the event a success.
It had been cancelled last year due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
Mr Swain said: “It was such a fantastic day that was enjoyed by everyone.
