The Bear’s Paw in Newton has held it’s annual family fun day.

Though attendance was lower than last year and the weather was not brilliant a total of £510 was raised.

Stallholders, a barbecue, music and pony rides all raised money for the Miles of Smiles Appeal with the ponies being the biggest hit this year.

One member of the bar staff who was slightly too ‘big’ was photographed with Fudge the lovely pony who did all the hard work.

Alex Roddy, the winner of the Bear’s Paw pub idol, also sang for the charity to entertain the crowds.
