Locals came in their hundreds on Sunday to have fun in the sun on Denver’s Playing Field for the annual family fun day.

This year, the field played host to zorb balls, vintage vehicles, fairground rides and “Dark Age” reenactment society Wuffa.

Under 16s entered the fun day for free and adults paid £1 to go towards the playing field association’s running costs.

Alan Thulbourne, chairman of the Denver Playing Field Association, said: “It went very well, it was a lovely day and everybody that came through the gate seemed to enjoy it.”

Wuffa Saxon and Viking Reenactment Society was a particular highlight of the day, with members of their clan putting on fighting dipslays in the show ring.

But that wasn’t all that was on offer, people of all ages could enjoy hot food, a raffle, a car boot, a display of minature ponies and live music.
