HUNDREDS of people attended the Woodford Halse Summer Regatta.

It took place on Friday night and saw a whole host of entertainment for the village.

The boat race saw floats made of some of the most popular cartoon characters.

Other entertainment includes live music, children’s rides and refreshments such as hot food and a Pimms and beer tent serving real ale.

There were also a number of stalls fundraising for charity.

The event organiser Janet Cheshire said: “It went brilliantly, there were hundreds of people that turned up and the most important thing is that it didn’t rain.

“We did a head count at one point and we had more than 800 people attending which was really good.

“Everyone had a great time and all of the charities that turned up made a lot of money which is very important.”

It is the fourth time the event took place and was sponsored by estate agents Tremayne and Belcher.
