Run by the Vale of Belvoir Lions, Gala Day – which took a break last year – offered all the popular attractions of a fun day for all the family.

A highlight was the crowning of the village’s May Queen.

The honour went to Emily Silverwood, and sharing the regal moment were Jessica Lewis, Amelia Burton, and Scarlett Hall.

There was also a display of maypole dancing, a tug of war and displays in the arena.
