LOCALS turned out to support Lanhydrock's annual fête and £900 made from the event was split between Lanhydrock War Memorial Hall and St Hydroc Church.

There were book and plant stalls to browse and cream teas for sale, along with games and raffle prizes.

The fête was opened by Percy Coad, who was born in the parish and farmed there all his working life.

Lanhydrock Golf Club donated a bed and breakfast voucher, which was won by Mary-Joyce Smayles, and Pat Gunn of Lanhydrock War Memerial Hall donated money towards the grand draw.

Wendy Holding won a jar of honey for guessing the number of bees brought by Squadron Leader Louis Riley, and she also won the treasure hunt.

The locally turned Lanhydrock beech lamp was won by Mr and Mrs Brown.

Kath May, who helped organise the fête, thanked all those who supported the event, and said the poor weather on Saturday had reduced the usual number of people who attend, which resulted in profits being down this time.

She said hopefully more people would support the harvest supper on October 11.
