Other popular attractions included a performance by the Waltham Scottish Dancers and Acapella, a local singing group.

The fair began with an opening parade around the village hall which featured the local children, teachers, parents and Morris dancers.

One of the organisers Kerry Mota said: “We’ve definitely made a profit and again we will be donating back to local charities and groups that helped us on the day.

“Early evening we had a great kids disco (KidzCo) which was very well attended with a family quiz afterwards. We also had a music from local band Mantiss until late.

“I think everyone who came said they’d had a great time. A few people also attended from quite far away after enjoying last year’s fair so much.

“As always we hope to grow and each year put on something bigger and better for families, and raise funds for local groups too.”
