Villagers took to the streets to celebrate with Marianne and her retinue among the stars of the event.

She was joined by Morris dancers, a brass band and plenty of folk in fancy dress - from Star Wars characters to toy soldiers.

And there were plenty of games and activities for villagers to enjoy after the procession including donkey rides and a chance to go into the stocks.
