The two-day event was raising money for Macmillan Cancer Support, the Comet’s Charity of the Year.

Leo Maguire, chairman of the organising committee, said: “The event went very well, and there were plenty of attractions for the whole family to enjoy. We had more numbers on Sunday than Saturday due to the weather but overall we had very positive comments and vibes from visitors and stallholders.

“We’re always looking to improve year on year, but the event would not be possible without the help of a lot of people so thanks must go to them.”
