More than 400 visitors flocked to Lympsham Loves Food, where stalls rushed to restock produce from the region which was sold at the festival on September 8.

The event, held at the sports club grounds, raised money for a new projector at Lympsham Manor Hall.

The equipment will also be used by primary-aged children at the adjacent school.

Around 16 companies set up stalls at the festival, including Winnie's Bakery, Brent House Farm Milk Store and Nutts Scotch Eggs.
