Around 60 people attended, many dressed in their Ascot best and eager to make the most of the opportunity to be pictured with a life-size cutout of Audrey Hepburn dressed in her black and white Ascot outfit from the classic musical film.

Highlights included the Home-Start Handicap ‘horse’ race - featuring hobby horses and nine-year-old Maelle Serru.

A tombola and raffle proved popular and Coun Henshaw said: “Thanks to everyone who came along and supported the event and to the Pavilion for the fantastic tea - they even donated a tea for two prize for the raffle and a bottle of prosecco for a horse’s heads or tails game.”
