WICKEN was a riot of sound and colour on Saturday as hundreds of people turned out for the annual village fete and dog show.
The event coincided with the 200th anniversary of Wicken windmill and, fittingly, the fete was officially opened by Windy Miller.
There was plenty on offer for visitors throughout the day, including tombola, bric a brac, inflatable assault course, craft stalls, a meerkat experience, barbecue, beer tent and plenty of live bands.
A grand raffle was held, with the winner able to select a piece of work by Wicken artist Tony Day. Wicken pub the Maid’s Head also hosted its annual beer festival to tie in with the fete.
Plenty of preened pooches also attended on the day to take part in the ever-popular dog show.

One of the event organisers, Jean Turner, said: “It was an excellent day, the weather was brilliant and everybody enjoyed themselves. We can’t thank all of our supporters and volunteers enough and we’d also like to thank everyone who came down to visit.”
Money raised at the event will be split between village organisations, include the village hall and church.
