VILLAGERS and visitors came out to enjoy a day of family fun.

On Saturday, St Mary Bourne hosted its annual Flower Show and Fete on the Recreation Ground under the blazing summer sun.

Throughout the day, those involved hosted a variety of activities for both young and old to enjoy such as a raffle, tombola and a model railway, while Hampshire Fire and Rescue Service turned up to give youngsters a chance to explore a fire engine.

There was also an opportunity for families and friends to get competitive with tortoise racing, a penalty shoot-out, sumo wrestling and have-a-go archery.

But for those who wanted to enjoy a relaxing afternoon there was plenty of entertainment on offer from the traditional maypole dancing to live music and even a dog show and training session.

Culinary delights were also on show as village residents rolled up their sleeves to bake an array of homemade cakes, while others served afternoon teas, scooped ice cream and manned the barbecue.

And for those that wanted to get out of the sun, a marquee was set up on the green full of local produce, flower arrangements and handicraft, with competition fierce to take home the top prizes.

Much of the produce and handicraft was then auctioned off at the end of the day to raise funds for charities.
