Susie Parkins drove her mobile canteen to the event, which took place on Friday, straight from catering for Sky Sports darts in Wolverhampton.

For twenty years she has catered for film and television crews. People in the large crowd in North Creake were able to sample her pulled pork baps and spicy bean burgers.

The 12,000 lights strung on trees along the length of the village green were switched on by landlord of the Jolly Farmers village pub Chris Dimblebee.

Father Christmas also made an appearance and gave all the primary school children presents.
