The pub held the sixth international conker competition, with an impressive 69 people taking part. Mark White was the eventual winner, bagging a cash prize.

Landlady and organiser Debbie Noon said: “We had a good turnout so we’re pleased with that, and luckily no-one got injured by the conkers either.

“We even had some holidaymakers turn up and take part. They were all acting like little school boys and girls.”
