THE 55th annual Eastham Riverside Fete has yet again been a great success.

The event, held at Eastham Village Hall, boasted attractions such as Mike's Donkeys, Malvern Chase Brass Band, tombola, skittles and a coconut shy.

Birds of prey, a selection of vintage cars and tractors and more were on display as well as a silent auction with a range of great prizes including meals at various local eateries, vouchers, days out including Tenby's Dinosaur Park, Shelsley Hill Climb, Monkey Mania and more, flowers, an evening out wassailing, a builder's bag of logs, and an MOT.

Kushal Phuyal, who has played internationally for Nepal, took charge of the fetes football game.
