HUNDREDS of people enjoyed a luncheon at Wick St Lawrence harvest home and more than 1,000 attended the evening's festivities.

The event has been running for more than 100 years and includes a traditional lunch before an afternoon of fun and games for children, sheep racing for adults and music in the evening.

One of its organisers, Ben Cox, said: “Black Rock Reptiles did a display for kids with snakes, spiders and lizards.

“There was pottery making, face-painting, a play bus and a circus display as well.”

The event has raised £8,500 for charities this year, including Weston Lifeboat Appeal, Parkinsons UK, support for leukemia and Ollie’s Journey.
