Manor Lodge, in Portland Avenue, held the summer time event in aid of Pete’s Dragons after residents decided the charity would be its cause to support for 2018.

More than £1,500 was raised for the charity, which offers suicide bereavement services.

At the event, opened by mayor Jeff Trail and town crier Roger Bourgien, there were stalls selling homemade jams, cakes as well as a tombola, a bottle stall and Play Your Cards Tight.

There was also a refreshment area including a barbecue and afternoon tea marquee with traditional cream teas.

Entertainer Cameron Lemmer provided the music.

One of the residents said: “It reminds me of a village fete. I always enjoy these events.”

Organisers thanked the community, friends and families for joining the event.
