Organisers were delighted with a village fun day that lived up to its title.

South Luffenham residents were invited to the parish fields on Sunday for a day of games and activities.

People enjoyed splat the rat, minigolf, skittles, hook a duck, and a tricky game getting marbles into an upturned flower pot.

Youngsters could take a ride on a mini steam railway. The best dressed wheels competition was won by Elsa Maria Cockburn in her wheelchair, impersonating Pebbles Flintstone’s carriage to great effect.

The dog show was a crowd-pleaser and Elsa Maria’s sister Josie won first prize for the best trick, where her dog sang in response to a squeaky toy. This was followed by the children’s races, which generated much noise and many smiles.

The Chater Community Choir directed by Tracy Steward then entertained the crowd with a set of familiar and uplifting songs.

Grasmere Farm provided burgers and sausages and cream teas and cakes were sold in the village hall.

Money raised on the day will go to St Mary’s Church and the new village hall project.
