A number of organisations joined forces for the annual Waltham St Lawrence parish fete on Saturday

From 1pm, visitors to the event at Shurlock Row Cricket Club in Shurlock Row could enjoy a number of fun activities including a bouncy castle and a petting farm.

Children could also take a ride on Maidenhead Lions Club train.

There was also a dog show and a number of cars on display.

Caroline Butler, who is part of the fete committee, said it was the 'perfect weather'.

She added: "People from all organisations including the cricket club and the parish council in the village come together and enjoy the day.

"Though we have similar stalls and entertainment every year we also like to have special events, like this year we have human hungry hippos.

"It really is a community event, everyone pulls together.

"From Friday morning we have people turning up to help set up, it is a great thing to see."

After last year's event raised £8,000 the organisers are hoping to raise the same amount this year.

Profits from the event are donated to the Waltham St Lawrence Parish Chuch, Waltham St Lawrence Primary School, Waltham St Lawrence Cricket Club and Neville Hall, which is where the Parish Council is based.
