As always, the festival is raising money for Letchworth–based Garden House Hospice, and is currently less than £30 away from hitting its fundraising goal.

Organiser Nigel Eaton said: “I’m so grateful to everyone who has entered, battling the weekend’s blustery winds with a display made from straw wasn’t easy! I’m also so, so grateful to our visitors who have been so generous.

“We actually had a (socially distanced) queue to vote at times over the weekend and we would love to see more people visit over the next week.”
