Chair of the fete Jo Goodson explained the thinking behind the theme.

She said: “We decided on fairies because it gave people a lot of options for fancy dress.

“We had a lot of princesses, some Little Red Riding Hoods and even the Ugly Sisters!

Other highlights on the day included performances from Cuddington Youth Drama, the school choir and Claydon Dance Academy.
