The annual event, at the Duke of Grafton's Euston Park, showcased everything rural including crafts, farm animals and country skills.

'They put on yet another fantastic event and we are extremely grateful for the funds they have raised which will help us continue to provide end-of-life care and support for those who need it across our community.
'Thank you to everyone who supported this year's event and we hope to see you all again next year, which I am sure will be bigger and better than ever.'
