Terry Jordan, town clerk, said: “Stall holders told me that they were surprised at just how busy it was so early on in the night. It was very busy from the beginning.

“We started the night by going on the dodgems as we always do. The mayor then went on the children’s train rollercoaster – which I said was a great photo opportunity.

“Everybody just had a good time. We just want people to know the town council does support the fair as it brings so many people into the town centre.
