HOLMER Park Spa launched its first annual summer fete this weekend, with the crowds turning out to take part in everything from egg and spoon races to more traditional sports.

With proceeds going to St Michael’s Hospice, the fun-filled day saw children, adults and even dogs get in on the action.

Also in attendance, on a hot and humid day, was a fire engine for the youngsters to sit in.

“Judging by the smiles it will be back with a bang next year,” said photographer Paul Jackson, who was covering the event.
