INCLEMENT weather failed to stop the crowds from flocking to the annual Lemsford village fete on Bank Holiday Monday.
Around 2,000 people descended on the village to see children from nearby St John's Primary School sing and dance around the maypole.
Visitors enjoyed archery, pony rides and coconut shies and there were also stalls selling cakes and plants.
Edward Cardale, the vicar of St John's Church, Lemsford, said: "We rose above the disappointing weather.

"We had a good crowd despite rain in the morning and a rather chilly day."
Organisers hope this year's event will net between �8,000 and �10,000.
