Clive Porter, who attended the event, said: "Young couples sauntered through the myriad of stalls, laughing and chatting, while children excelled themselves attempting to win prizes in the form of cuddly toys, and confectionary.

"There were dance displays, and bands and a lot of produce for sale."
