Around 5,000 people attended the must-anticipated Epping Town Show on Sunday afternoon.

Organised by Epping Town Council, more than 60 community stalls were pitched at Stonards Hill Recreation Ground to welcome residents enjoy the community event.

Visitors also enjoyed an art exhibition, model railway display and tarot reading in the Jack Silley Pavilion where the 'Julie's At Stonards' cafe sold tea and cakes.

Town Mayor Grahame Scruton said: "Epping Town Council would like to thank everyone who contributed to Epping Town Show as a trader, exhibitor, in the arena or as a visitor.

"The Town Show is a great way for the community to come together and enjoy a day of family fun.

"I would like to thank Epping Town Council’s staff for all their hard work and thank all our residents who came along and took part."

Live music and entertainment was provided by a variety of acts, including the Epping Forest Band, Bounce Rebound Fitness, Etcetera Morris Men, and Theydon and Abridge Jazz Club.

Youngsters got the chance to have a picture with Peppa Pig and Marshall the Dog from Paw Patrol and take part in donkey rides, woodturning and a climbing wall.

A display of classic and vintage cars were a new feature to this year’s show, alongside popular attractions such as fairground rides and a Punch and Judy show.

The PDSA charity's pet check vehicle provided free check-ups for four-legged visitors, while an agility course was organised by Lee Valley Dog Training School.

The day concluded with a dog show which was organised by Hastingwood-based charity, St Clare Hospice.
