A QUINTESSENTIALLY English summer fete was held on the longest day as thousands of people poured into Cranborne Manor for the annual event on Saturday afternoon.

Pimm’s on the lawn and tea and scones were served under the heady scent of rambling roses and lavender while the music from Verwood Concert Brass played.

There were many traditional stalls selling all sorts of bric-a-brac, plants and crafts. All the proceeds from the event will go to Cranborne Church.
