Once again the team behind Thriplow Daffodil Weekend have pulled off another successful event.
About 6,000 visitors turned up to the event on Sunday alone, and the overflow carpark was opened due to the quantity of vehicles.
Dan Murton from the Thriplow Daffodil Weekend Committee, said: “It went very well. It was a fantastic day on Sunday.
“The sun was out, it was really good. There was a fantastic atmosphere.
“Everybody in the village puts so much effort into it. It wouldn’t work unless the whole village got involved, and we had people helping out by making drinks, monitoring the car park and clearing up at the end of the day.
