VISITORS dodged the showers to enjoy this year’s Thriplow Daffodil Weekend.
Now in its 45th year, the spring festival saw crowds flock to the village despite some inclement weather.
Dan Murton, from the organising committee, said that though visitor numbers were slightly down on previous years, the event was still a great success.
He said: “We got away with it a bit on Sunday because the rain didn’t get to us until 3.30pm, so we stayed dry for the main part of the day. I think numbers were down a bit on previous years because of the weather, although we had the usual amount of coach parties coming in from all over the place.
“People know what a good weekend it is and we were very happy with how it went, despite the weather.”

As well as the famous daffodils, which bloom all over the village and give the weekend its name, guests were able to enjoy a variety of stalls, displays and live entertainment such as Morris dancing.
“One of the particular highlights for me was the taste of Thriplow area,” said Mr Murton.

“The food and drink was all produced locally, and proved you had things like British salami and locally distilled gin. It proved to be very popular.”
