Youngsters and adults alike could explore a display of tractors, trucks, jeeps, land rovers and motorbikes and then grab a bite to eat at the food marquee.

There were also farm animals to meet including chickens, goats, sheep, pigs and even a bee display.

A queue for donkey rides never diminished and Fylde Ukelele Band provided the musical accompaniment for the weekend.
