Four-day summer solstice festival raises £10,000 for good causes
SUMMER Moon Festival goers in Kingskerswell have raised almost £10,000 for charity.
Festival chairman Tony Johnson said he 'did not have enough superlatives' to describe his dedicated committee who put on the four-day event around the time of the summer solstice.
All proceeds will go towards charities and organisations in the Torquay and Newton Abbot area.
Mr Johnson said: "It is a real village community event with plenty of fun and laughter."

He said that around 4,000 visited the event on the parish meadows over the four days.
Among the attractions was a concert by the Torquay Symphony Orchestra, beer and wine festival, family fun day and an under-16s talent contest organised by the scouts.
Steve Michaels, group scout leader for 1st Kingskerswell Scouts and entertainment organiser for the fun day, said: "It was another example of true community spirit being alive and well in Kingskerswell."
