The community turned out despite the Saturday showers to enjoy a family fun day at Rippingale’s church and the village pub, the Bull Inn.
One of the organisers, Laura Langdon, explained the funds raised go towards family events at the Rippingale Feast later in the year.
She said: “It was a good turn out. The weather was so bad we had no idea what would happen.”
There were vintage vehicles, a children’s craft competition, dinosaur dig, baby chicks, games, bees, pebble painting and candle making.
Laura said the chicks were a big hit. “The play area is in the middle of being replaced so it was something for children and families to do.”
