Visitors took part in a range of activities including grand raffle, bbq, refreshments, bric a brac, plant sale, children’s colouring competition, scarecrow competition, guess the name of the doll, tarot reading and coin game.
The event was well attended by local residents, plot holders and also included a visit from local councillors Vivienne Barton and Bruce Lines who had a busy schedule drawing the Grand Raffle, judging the colouring competition and choosing the best scarecrow entry.
