There was plenty of entertainment for young and old alike at Sproxton family fun day on Sunday, and thankfully the weather stayed fine.

The event, at The Crown Inn featured a packed programme, which included vintage tractors on display in the field opposite, classic cars in the village hall car park, a dozen motorbikes outside the pub and a various stalls and a barbecue in the pub car park.

The purpose of the day was to raise funds for the Derbyshire, Leicestershire and Rutland Air Ambulance (DLRAA).

Landlord at The Crown Inn Alan Edmunds said: “Those who came along commented on what a lovely day they had which was good to hear.

“We had more than 100 people turn up and the pub was busy throughout the afternoon.

“A representative from the DLRAA attended and we managed to raise £1,300 for the charity. We’ll also be giving a small sum of the money to the village hall.

“The family fun day was a first for the pub which we organised ourselves. We hope to repeat the event again in the near future.”
