The sun beat down on a packed green, as hundreds headed to a village’s annual charity fun day.
The 95th annual Pill Rag saw families flock to the village green for a day packed with fun activities including a dog show, numerous trade stalls, a bouncy castle, and much more besides.
Organiser Pauline McDade said: "It could not have gone any better, the green was full - there was something for everyone.
"It was just super."
Kirsty Lewis was crowned Rag Queen, before the traditional procession wound its way around the village, led by pipers and Bristol Scooter Club, it featured people dressed as jelly fish, a mob of Minions, Pills answer to the hells angels - The Sharks From Hell, and even a pair of dancing dinosaurs.
