It was another successful year for the annual Wooburn Fete, which also marked a belated happy 90th birthday for the Queen.

The event, now in its third year, was held on Wooburn Green on Saturday.

About 1,000 visitors passed through over the course of the day, taking the chance to sample a range of stalls, including 10 craft pitches and a variety of games laid on by the 1st Wooburn Scout Group, including a crockery smash, tin can alley, hook a duck and splat the rat.

And special guests included Elsa from Frozen and Captain Jack Sparrow from Pirates of the Caribbean.

Margaret Amos, secretary of the Wooburn Residents Association, which organised the fair and raised about £2,400, said: “It was brilliant to get all the community together, talking to each other.

“That’s our main objective, to get everyone together, and then raising money is a bit of a secondary objective.”

She added: “It’s a great community event that gets friends and neighbours and community groups talking to each other and about things that are going on and I believe a community won’t thrive unless it gets together regularly.”
