The traditional celebration saw entertainment from the Rumburgh Morris side, the Tutti Folk Band, Maypole dancing and, during a brief sunny spell, a group of belly dancers.

The tea tent proved very popular, along with the games and stalls spread around the area, and The Rumburgh Buck was open all day for those who like a stronger beverage.

David Borer, treasurer of the Rumburgh and St Michael Village Hall Committee, said that a record figure of £2,700 was raised.

'This amount will boost village hall funds especially as recent repairs and refurbishments have taken place,' he said. 'The hall is a much valued asset to Rumburgh and the surrounding area. Thank you to all the helpers and supporters who made this May Day a record.'
