On a baking day the community in Morton and Hanthorpe turned out to enjoy the 14th annual street fair on Saturday.

The event, which was first organised by the Morton and Hanthorpe 2000+ club for the Millennium, was held in High Street, in the village hall and in a paddock.

Secretary of the organising group Brenda Birkenshaw said: “It gets bigger and bigger each year.

“It was extremely warm but it was a very good turn out and the stall holders are all happy.

“From the feedback we have had everyone seems to have had a really good time.”

On offer was children’s entertainment in the form of a Punch and Judy show, a magician and live music.

Visitors and residents at the street fair also enjoyed a surprise flyby from a Spitfire.

Along the driveways on the street there were a series of stalls, activities and refreshments available.

For the first time there were guided tours of St John’s Church by archivist Dave Mainwaring who gave an interesting incite into Morton church’s history.
