Westoe Village Fete returned on Saturday, June 25 – and it was a milestone event, marking the 50th year since relaunching in its present form in 1972.

It was a great day out for families with food stalls, fete games, live music and other fun – and let’s not forget, fundraising for charities close to people’s hearts.

The event has raised more than £35,000 since 2009, with the money pledged back into community organisations by the Westoe Village residents’ group.

Photographer Tim Richardson went along for a closer look. Check out the day's entertainment in our picture round-up.
