FUN and games were the order of the day as teams went head-to-head in an It's a Knockout challenge.
And it was all in the name of charity.
Both adult and junior teams turned out for the event on Therfield Heath on Sunday - and helped raise more that £3,000 for the Marie Curie cancer charity.
Organiser Christine Brown said she hoped eventually the event would raise about £5,000.

She said, however, that unlike last year's event there were no businesses taking part and the number of teams participating was less, too.

"It was a question of people getting together and making up a team," she said.
In the end the winners of the adult event - based on the BBC game of the 1960s - were from the Royston-based marching troupe, the Electralites.
And the junior contest was won by a team under the name of the Licorice Allsorts.
Each team were given about half-a-dozen silly games to play which either involved diving full-length along a soaked runway or jumping over various obstacles or attempting to walk in Wellington boots secured to a plank of wood.
