VILLAGERS in Kirton and Falkenham celebrated life in the country with an afternoon packed with events for all ages.
It was a great opportunity for the villages to get together and enjoy family fun, as they revelled in sunshine on one of the warmest days of the year so far.
The Kirton and Falkenham Churches' Country Fayre was held in the grounds of the Old Rectory by kind permission of Mr and Mrs Tim Church – and was judged the best ever, raising more than £5,000.
Members of the two churches and people from the village organised a variety of activities, including games, a draw, cream teas, a wide selection of stalls, games for young and old, steam traction rides, tombola, barbecue and a beer tent.
