The summertime event held at the Old Vicarage raised £2,400; half of this will be given to Otterton Primary School, with the other half to be split between two charities chosen by residents.

The primary school will get £1,200 and both the RNLI and Millwater School will get £600 each.

This year’s event also marked the 30th anniversary of the Otterton care home, which was established by husband and wife Mike and Pat Parkin.

They have since passed it on to daughter Rebecca and her partner Dan Green.

Speaking about the event, Rebecca said it was inspired by their memories of growing up in Lustleigh and looking forward to the annual fete on the village green. She added: “It’s become a date in the diary for villagers and pupils of Otterton Primary School to come together and help raise funds for the community.”
