Heydour Parish Fete, Flower and Vegetable Show and the Heydour Cresta Run saw a great turn out on Sunday.

Village hall committee member Richard Peace, estimated around £1,200 was raised to be shared between the village hall and church and for the upkeep of the village’s Millenium Green.

Entries for the flower and vegetable sections were increasing each year. Meanwhile the Cresta Run, in its fourth year, saw home made soapbox carts hurtle down a 400 yard course from the village hall past the Green against the clock. The eventual winner was Rob Walmsley. The hope is to increase entries next year.

There were games and entertainment on the Green. Mr Peace thanked all who attended, including the three produce show judges, Sue Clark of Culverthorpe Hall, Margaret Outram and Ron Harris.
