Viv Betts, of the May Day committee, said: 'It's lovely to see so many local families enjoying the day out without getting ripped off with high prices.

'Friends from the four local churches work together well to plan the event and we thank all who contribute to the May Day Fund. We are grateful for volunteers who help on the day and if anyone would like to offer their services for next year, please see one of the stewards.'
