This year’s Sutton Feast included a duck race, live music, bee exhibition, Fenland history exhibit, vintage motorbike display, Microlight demonstration, barn dance and tractor rides.

The highlight of the event was a fly over from a Battle of Britain Lancaster Bomber on the Sunday afternoon.

Brian Watson, chairman of Sutton Feast, said: “On Sunday we closed the high street and there was a barn dance, musical acts performed on the back of a lorry provided by Brett’s and stalls sold high quality crafts and locally sourced produce.

“But we stopped it all for 15 minutes while the Lancaster Bomber did its fly over.

“There must have been more than 1,000 people at the festival and we are already talking about plans for next year’s edition.

“And whatever surplus has come out of this event will be distributed to local good causes.”
