David Baldry, who helped organise the event, said: “It went very well. Everyone seems to be pleased with the attractions and they were especially enthusiastic about Jean-Pierre Goy. He is really something special and did four performances - even in the rain.
“It was a good family show with something for everyone. Once we've sorted out expenses and made sure we have enough money for next year we should have raised quite a bit for local charities.”
