The villagers have shown their imagination and inventiveness in sculptures ranging from a very hungry caterpillar to bright pink pigs.

Coun David Downes, cabinet member for leisure and tourism on Bolsover District Council, said: “The village has really come together and produced some wonderful creations from giraffes, farmyard scenes and even a waitress for people to enjoy and have their photograph taken with.

“The past eighteen months have not been easy for anyone, so we wanted to bring a smile to people’s faces and bring a bit of cheer to the local community. This is the second year we have staged it and we are hoping to build on its success and provide a much bigger event in 2022.”

The Flower Pot Festival runs until July 25, 2021.
