There was something for everyone at the Hilgay Vintage and Country Show at the weekend.

There were exhibitions of vintage tractors, lorries, cars, engines and bikes, as well as a craft fair, trade stands, bouncy castle, face painting, a range of food stalls and a vintage sweet van.

Churchwarden and organiser Peter Bates said: “Although we had a wet Saturday afternoon, Sunday was beautiful.

“We hope to raise between £4,500 and £5,000 once all of the money is in.”

In the show ring there was a medieval re-enactment, with jousting displays and interactive archery and battle sessions. A car boot on the Saturday was followed by a fun dog show at 3.30pm.

Although the majority of the proceeds go to the village church, organisers hope to use some of the funds to repair a refurbished lychgate which has so far had £12,000 spent on it.
