Succulent sweet corn, fresh runner beans and colourful sweet potatoes made an appearance at the village fair last Saturday afternoon.

More than 80 people enjoyed a day out at Redhill hall, in Church Lane, and cream teas, a ploughman's lunch, kids' face-painting and a raffle entertained people for hours.

Children brought along their homemade designs to be judged, including Holly Ashman's carrot bug creation which starred in the prize-winning line-up.

John Lee entered his giant red onions into the competition and Sylvia Ashman, who produced the best flower.

The event raised £300 for the club's playground fund, and people have donated more than £8,000 since the initiative launched last year.
