YOUNGSTERS enjoyed a range of activities and games at the Bedhampton Summer Show.

And, despite the rain, many dressed up in Diamond Jubilee themed costumes to take part in a fancy dress show on Saturday.

Performances from Solent Dog Display Team, Dance Troupe Aziza and the Portsmouth City Band, took place in the main arena area and dozens of stalls kept the shoppers busy.

There was also an exhibition of pictures created by the children of Bidbury Junior School on display inside St Thomas’ Church exploring what the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee meant to them.

Ron Tate, 66, of Lodge Road, Bedhampton, was on the organising committee for the summer show.

He said: ‘The numbers were drastically down because of the rain but we all had a good time anyway.

‘We had lots of gazebos for people to shelter under and they could go into the church, so we just got on with it in a typically British way.

‘We wanted to keep the tradition going and make sure that everyone still had a good time.’
