HUNDREDS of people flocked to a village green at the weekend to enjoy traditional games and a host of activities offered at a summer fete.

Friends and families from Locking gathered on the playing field in Grenville Avenue to take part in the annual event, which was organised by the 1st Locking Scouts.

Scout leader Gareth Coombes said: “It went really well, there were a lot of people there. There were a lot of people from outside the village as well which was really good.”

The fete was packed full with games and stalls, including a car boot sale, climbing wall, bouncy castle, tombola and a chance to name an oversized orange dragon.

Local businesses also had stands where they demonstrated different crafts, and other groups including the primary school, preschool and girl guides also made an appearance.

Mr Coombes said: “About 500 or 600 people came throughout the day. The weather was great – lovely and sunny.”

Money raised from the event will be added to the scouts’ funds.
