Waiting for Video...

Hundreds of villagers enjoyed a sun-kissed Hambleton Gala Day as the popular Wyre event enjoyed its recent tradition of warm summer weather.

As crowds packed out the procession route, residents watched on as 14-year-old Cassidie Hannigan was crowned the new Gala Queen.

Keely Jones, part of the organising team, said: “It was an absolutely beautiful day - it is the third year in a row it has been like this. We had a fun fair and a procession, with children from Hambleton Primary Academy dressed as minions from the film Despicable Me.

“There were a lot of small events which the council had put on, including a few sports events, such as rounders and football.

“Hambleton WI baked some lovely cakes too - all in all it was a great day.”
