People enjoyed a meal made with home-grown produce at the event’s lunch on Saturday afternoon.

The meal began at 1pm and children could get involved in an under-14s fancy dress competition.

Committee member and event organiser Mel Allen said: “The day went really well and more than 400 people came along.

“Unfortunately we couldn’t hold any of the outdoor activities we normally would have due to the weather, but it was well received and everyone had a great day.

“We didn’t hold our evening event this year because it hasn’t been as well supported as it has been in previous years.

“It would be shame for the village to lose a harvest home which is more than 100 years old, which is why we need continued support from the community to keep it up and running.”
