Other attractions included a petting zoo and performances by acts including The Burns Unit and The Stokes Bay Strummers.

Ten craft stalls were put on and a raffle held.

Gosport MP Caroline Dinenage was among those in attendance.

The event was put on by a joint committee made up of St Faith’s Church, Lee-on-the-Solent’s Residents’ and Community’s associations and The Gosport and Lee-on-the-Solent Lions Club.

Martin Marks, chairman of the joint committee, said: ‘It’s always a great idea for the community to get together. It was absolutely brilliant in terms of local spirit.’
