Hundreds of villages had an enjoyable time at a harvest home event, despite the threats of rain.
The people of Lympsham sat down to the lunch last weekend to celebrate their community and raise some money for local projects.
Guests took part in an open-air service and was followed by the lunch, entertainment and children’s sports.
Committee chairman Selena Luff said: “The event went really well and we were very lucky to avoid most of the rain.
“We hold this event each year to bring the village together and we raise a bit of money for our local church, schools and projects.”
Around 300 hundred people were welcomed by a cricket player made out of hay bales before they sat down for the delicious meal.
Local man Paul Godfrey also held a collection in support of his charity 10km swim for Bone Cancer Research. He raised £300 at the harvest home.
