PEOPLE in Ludlow have been making the best of the summer sunshine.

Traders, especially those selling ice cream and cold drinks have been doing a swift trade.

The town and surrounding area has been especially busy with visitors to the Fringe Festival.

One of the places that has proved to be particularly popular has been the Millennium Green where people have taken the opportunity to shed their shoes and socks and take a paddle.

Whitcliffe Common has also attracted people drawn to the outdoors by the sunshine.
