Organisers of the Huggate Fair are feeling sky high after the event, which featured helicopter flights above the Wolds, raised more than £4,000 for the local church.
Between 400 and 500 people flocked to the event last Saturday, held at Carter’s Barn in the village, and more than 120 of those enjoyed a 10-minute helicopter ride with a bird’s eye view of Huggate and its surroundings.
The event also featured a mix of traditional fun and games, including morris dancing, craft stalls, maggot racing, children’s games and competitions, hook a duck and more.
It was held in aid of St Mary’s Church in Huggate.
One of the fair’s organisers, Steven Poole, chair of St Mary’s Parochial Church Council, said: “We’ve recently spent in excess of £28,000 on building drainage.
“It’s a grade one listed building. If costs a large amount of money to run it every year.
“All the money we raised will go directly to the church.”
Speaking about the helicopter flights, he added: “Everybody, without exception, thoroughly enjoyed it.
“We are going to do it again next year.”
