More than 7,500 people turned out for the 17th annual Stotfold Mill Steam Fair and Country Show at the weekend – but could this be the last one?
The restored watermill, which is run entirely by volunteers, is appealing to the community for help to continue the popular event as stalwart organisers prepare to take a step back.
Organiser Liz Elvin told the Comet: "It was an absolutely fantastic weekend, I think lots of people thoroughly enjoyed it.
"Some members of the events team have been doing this for 16 years and it's time for them to retire. It's a lot of work and takes a team to bring it together.
"Currently, we don't have anyone to replace them, and without the volunteers it's hard to continue.

"The weekend proved that it's a fantastic weekend and people still want to come. We just need them to get involved.
"I think Stotfold still has great community spirit. We would love to have some people come help run an event."
