LIKE the weather itself last Sunday, the family fun day at Bolinge Hill Farm in Buriton had a bit of everything.

There were plenty of traditional stalls, including the stocks and splat the rat.

The barbecue had burgers made from beef produced by the farm and visitors were kept warm in typical British style by copious amounts of tea and cake.

To commemorate the centenary of the end of the First World War, the theme of the event was showcasing agriculture machinery through the years.

Traction engines, a threshing machine, a Fordson Dexta tractor from 1959, modern-day machines and classic cars from the Double LL Club were all on display.

Musical entertainment was provided by marching band TS Tenacity NTC and from the Salvation Army.

Susan Shone generously opened her farm for the event, which raised over £1,200 for Help For Heroes.
