Waltham’s annual charter fair took place on Saturday where families came together to enjoy sunshine and a variety of events on offer.

Highlights included a medieval display, live music, Zorb balls, fairground rides, classic cars and a dog show. The fair began with a parade through the village.

Kerry Mota, a member of the Waltham Charter Fair committee, said: “The event went really well this year and I’d say we had in excess of 500 adults and children.

“We were really lucky with the weather this time and I think people enjoyed the fact the attractions were held during the course of a full day rather than over two.

“A new committee organised proceedings this year so we’d all like to say a big thank you to everyone who turned up and gave their support.”

This year’s event was held in support of local groups and charities associated with the village and surrounding areas.
