Organisers paid tribute to all those who worked hard to make the third event a success through the heavy rain.

Festival goers didn’t let the bad weather keep them away as they came out in their droves to enjoy the two days of the dedicated game fair at Woodacre Lodge Farm, Scorton.

Organiser Craig Whittingham said: “Thanks to everyone who came along and supported us despite the disappointing weather conditions. The feedback we have had has been great! Onwards and upwards for next year!”
