Punters turned out in force for Roadwater Fête on Saturday generating £6,200 for running the village hall and sports field.

Spokesman, Mary Coles said: “We not only made a surprisingly good profit, but created an enjoyable afternoon out in the sun.”

She said the event featured all the usual attractions such as individual stalls and children’s games but one or two novelties such as egg throwing and a greasy pole and the Brompton Regis Morris Dancers.

Music was provided by The West Somerset Brass, there was an exhibition by Roadwater Art Group,skittles, a spinning jenny, a static display of equipment by Williton Fire Brigade, and tractors to climb all over by Paul Sawatzki.

There was a particularly well stocked quality vintage clothing stall, a coconut shy, home-made refreshments and cream teas, and produce display auctioned off by Nigel McBrayne.

Dotty Spence won the duck race, and Clare Walder drew the winning ticket to take home a wheelbarrow loaded with alcohol drinks.

Mrs Coles said a useful new addition to their trading equipment was a card reading cash dispenser that gave out £500.

She expressed thanks to everybody who helped in many ways or contributed prizes.

In the produce show, winners were: Polly Newman, The Children’s Cup; Nancy Tickle The Ladies’ Cup; Gerald Beaver The Horticulture Cup.
