Morris dancers decked out in colourful tatter coats and top hats danced the afternoon away during the Datchet Village Fete on Saturday.

The Datchet Border Morris group performed in the fete’s main arena at Churchmead School, in Priory Way, as villagers soaked up the party atmosphere.

About 1,000 people turned up to the event and took part in attractions ranging from crockery smashing to a junior assault course.

A display of owls was on offer for bird lovers while visitors were also treated to performances of Irish dancers and St Mary’s Brass Band.

Organisers hope the event will raise more than £6,000 for charities including Datchet Good Neighbours, Windsor Mencap and the Royal Borough-based charity People to Places.

Julia Hardy, treasurer for the Datchet Village Fete committee, said: “It was lovely to see so many local people come together to enjoy attractions and raise money for local good causes.”

She also thanked companies including ComXo, Horler Estate Agents, Oakwood Estates and Datchet scout groups for supporting the event.
