SLIDESHOW: Pedigree pooches and races galore at Little Downham Fete

Written byJORDAN DAY

Stormy weather failed to dampen the spirits of Little Downham’s annual fete.

Hundreds of families turned out for the extravaganza on the village green on Saturday.

There were a whole host of fun-filled activities, including children’s races, adult races, family games and tug-of-war competitions.

For the first time ever, there was also a fun dog show at the fete, which saw pooches of all shapes and sizes strutting their stuff before the judges.

Debbie Adams-Payne, a member of the fete’s organising committee, said: “We had a fantastic fete this year.

“The weather wasn’t great and despite the heavens opening as we set up we had a brilliant turnout and the atmosphere was super.

“We held a fun dog show for the first time this year and we definitely think we’ll make it an annual attraction as it was so popular.

“All the races and games were as popular as ever with people of all ages, as well as the tug-of-war contests and lots of stalls.

“We’d like to thank everyone for their support and we’re hoping we’ve raised plenty of money to hand out to good causes within the parish.”
