GUILDEN Morden's Village Show was Fit For A Queen on Saturday.
The event which honoured the Queen's 80th birthday saw the Royston-based majorettes The Electralites open the show with a grand parade.
Elsewhere Guildren Morden Primary School entertained visitors with country dancing and Gamlingay Fire Brigade took part in a tug-of-war.
There was also a wheelbarrow race, a fancy dress competition, and performances by a local band called Cliff Rescue and the Helicopter.

About £3,500 was raised, £1,000 more than last year, and proceeds will be used to refurbish the village hall and contribute to a new one.
Jessica Heavey, of the village show committee said: "It was a good fun day for the family and we are thankful the weather stayed fine because it's a big factor.

"It doesn't matter how much you organise something, if the weather doesn't hold out, you won't get as many people or raise as much money."
Next year the show, which has been running since the 1980s, will take place on the second Saturday of September.
