DOZENS of visitors from across the Isle gathered at Haxey Memorial Hall for an autumn fair.

The fair was officially opened in the afternoon by Reverend Claire Potter, curator from the Old Rectory in Epworth.

Scores of families attended with their children to enjoy an afternoon out.

They were treated to a range of stalls, which sold books, toys, cakes, crafts and fresh vegetables.

There were also a number of games for kids to play, while adults tried their luck in the tombola.

Meanwhile, members of the methodist church served hot tea and coffee from the Gingham kitchen and visitors could also tuck into delicious homemade cakes and other confectionary.
