Sunday’s Vintage Family Fun Day at Sutton Bridge was a huge success and is expected to raise around £800, double last year’s amount.

The fun day was organised by Sutton Bridge Community Centre Fund, which runs The Curlew Centre, and the proceeds will be ploughed back into the centre, for the villagers’ benefit, and into putting on a bigger and better fun day next year.

Sutton Bridge Communuty Centre Fund chairman Alan Barber said: “Our long-term goal is to have a huge event in Sutton Bridge because it’s the sort of thing this village needs to bring it together, to get people out having fun.”

Between 600 and 700 people attended the event on Memorial Park.

The fun day was opened by the village prince and princess, William Stevenson and Molly Bracey.

One of the highlights was a flypast by the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight’s Spitfire.

There was also a gladiator duel, the chance to try your hand at paintballing, a bungee run, a bouncy castle and a teacup ride.

Visitors all enjoyed having a close up look at some feathered friends, birds of prey and owls.

Bargain hunters were there early as there was a car boot sale.

Admission to the event was free.
