Hilperton Community Fete raised money for local causes on Saturday, with hundreds of locals turning out in support of the annual event.

Organised by Hilperton Presents, the event took place at Hilperton Village Hall and field, with each stall holder able to raise money for a chosen charity or cause.

There was a BBQ and a range of activities, subsidised by a grant from Trowbridge Area Board. Organisers believe the event raised about £2,000 for charity in total.

Sonja Kotevska, who organised the event with Pam Turner, said: “It was great we were able to raise so much for the different causes. I want to say thank you to everyone who helped out, especially Paul Staddon, Mark Arnold, Kevin Robert, Viv Bielicki and Ros Higgins.”
