The spectacle was organised by 1st Shipham brownies, cubs, guides and scouts to raise money for club funds.

Brownies put on a maypole dance, while three pupils from Shipham First School were crowned May king and princesses.

Lenny's Coffee Shop whet visitors' appetites by serving up cream teas, while children tucked into candyfloss and treats.
