A festival of food and fun brought 650 people through the gate at Moneyrow Green at the weekend.
Holyport Community Trust launched the festival to fundraise to refurbish its children’s playground. Just replacing the fence is estimated to cost about £12,000.
Aided by good weather on Sunday, the festival saw a successful raffle, with first prize winning £250.
Soft toys were donated for the children's tombola and a ‘Little Riders’ mechanical pony in the car park was ‘a huge hit’ with youngsters of all ages.
As well as live music, face-painting and games run by children for children, there were trade stalls selling beauty products, jewellery, crafts, children’s books, and luxury food items.
