A crowd of 83 turned out for the party, which was aptly themed to red, white a blue.

There were prizes for best-dressed adult, best-dressed child, and best crown - and plenty of traditional games to play too.

Organiser Pat Bennett said: 'It all went very well indeed. Everyone had a good time, it was really relaxed.

'We were very lucky with the weather because it rained in the morning and in the evening but not during the day.'
