CROWDS flocked to Ufford to enjoy transport from the past as part of an event which organisers hope has raised several thousand pounds to help care for terminally ill people.

It was the sixth year the Ufford Bygones and Fun Day has been staged - and once again it featured a wide range of attractions.

Steam traction engines, vintage tractors and old motorcycles, plus vehicles from the 1920s through to the 1970s, were on display at Crown Farm.

For the more active there was a mini obstacle course, the retained fire crew from Woodbridge gave a display of rescue techniques, and there was a variety of arts and crafts stalls for people to enjoy.

Local bands Samboomba, Dfunkt, Skin the Fish, Simon Lambert and Ma Moor took to the stage throughout in a day the organisers declared a great success.

Over the last five years the event has raised £17,500 and this year the funds will again be going to support the work of St Elizabeth Hospice in Ipswich.
