Katharine McElligott, planning clerk at Buckingham Town Council said: "Some of the stall-holders were just raising awareness of their cause, some asked for donations or recruited volunteers, Stowe had little things for children to make and take away, Men in Sheds had a full range of wooden items to buy, and others had handicrafts, cakes, sweets or a tombola.

"The Buckingham Children’s Choir sang and played, and there were refreshments available in the small hall.

"Crowds built up quickly after the parade finished, and people were still coming in after 1.30pm."
