A force of over 40 volunteers from the club, assisted by fantastic weather, saw the festival run smoothly.

The festival concluded with Guy Laurence of festival sponsors Westons Visitors Centre presenting the awards to the winning teams.

The festival has been a staple in Ledbury's sporting calendar for the past 14 years, starting even before any of this year's young competitors were born.

Club president Roger Bateson said: "Ledbury RFC is extremely proud to host this annual event, seeing so many young children participate in an enjoyable, competitive tag festival.

"My thanks go out to the organisers, Bruce and Charlotte Allcock, who started this event some 14 years ago before any of this year's young participants were born.

"I also wish to thank the many volunteers and school staff who worked so hard to make this an outstandingly successful day.

"This is yet another prime example of the vital part Ledbury RFC plays in support of the wider community".
