Youngsters and adults competed to be the winner of the coveted conker 
trophy.

The event took place on Saturday, despite the gloomy weather and showers which threatened the challengers.

Dave Munday, the treasurer of the Friends of Holly Hill, said: ‘Everybody had a good time.

‘We got caught out by the weather a bit with some showers and it got a bit muddy.
