Vil­lage en­joys midsummer fair

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Neighbourhood News -

FAM­I­LIES flocked to a sun-soaked midsummer fun day to en­joy a host of de­lights.

The bi­en­nial event took place in the pic­turesque vil­lage of West Deep­ing on Sun­day, on the Tins­ley play­ing field op­po­site St An­drew’s church.

Among the ac­tiv­i­ties keep­ing vis­i­tors of all ages en­ter­tained were chil­dren’s sack and three-legged rac- es, a one-mile run, a thrilling tug-o-war game and tra­di­tional may­pole danc­ing dis­plays.

Stalls were hosted at the event, sell­ing ev­ery­thing from plants, cakes and books.

Also tempt­ing the crowds was a tombola and raf­fle. The vil­lagers pic­nicked and com­mem­o­rated the oc­ca­sion with a mass pho­to­graph.
