A VILLAGE was blessed with sunshine as hundreds of visitors enjoyed an annual fair.

Elwick Village Fair organisers were delighted that the annual event proved to be such a hit.

There was fun for all ages including fair rides, trampolines, a bouncy slide, stalls, performances by the Hartlepool Hawks Cheeleading Academy, pony rides and a dog show.

There were also displays and fundraising by Elwick Art Club, St Peter’s church, St Peter’s School, the Great North Air Ambulance and the Red Dreams performing arts charity.

The event was organised by the Elwick Millennium Association and has run since 2000 when the historic traditional fair was reinstated in the village.

Group chairman Louise Parks said: “It’s good to see everyone in the village enjoying themselves and people coming in from outside the village.

“There has been lots of work gone into it and it’s something that we prepare all year.

“It’s hard work for the committee to organise and we need more people on the committee to help.”
