A village festival held on Saturday and Sunday to celebrate the spring season has raised around £35,000 to help support children receiving cancer treatment at Addenbrooke’s Hospital.
Thriplow Daffodil Weekend was a real feast for the eyes and ears with craft barns, marquees, demonstrations and more than 100 stalls.
Daniel Murton, a member of the Thriplow Daffodil Weekend committee, said: “It was a fantastic event, even the sun came out on the Sunday and some of the daffodils were blooming.
“The highlight this year was the Taste of Thriplow marquee, with delicious and local street food.”
Revellers were treated to a host of entertainment from folk performers Alchemy to jazz quartet Searle Street Band and blues group Hope Brothers.

If that wasn’t enough, there was a magic show, organ recital and performances by Morris dancers.
