More than 2000 people flocked to the Burnham Market craft fair on Saturday - and the weather was fine for the 34th consecutive year.

The event is always held on the third weekend of August and crowds enjoyed the fine - albeit breezy - conditions as they browsed around more than 100 stalls with a range of crafts and displays from basket weaving to pottery making to metalwork.

All exhibitors donate 10pc of their takings to a fund which is distributed to local good causes and it is hoped more than �6000 will be given out.

Honorary treasurer Lawrence Rubin said: “We had an excellent turnout and people seemed to enjoy the variety and quality of the products we had sourced.

“The weather record held good and it was the 34th consecutive year we did not get rain.”
