Hundreds of people lined the streets of the village for the colourful annual event on Saturday. The fun-filled event raised pots of cash for Ashgate Hospicecare in Chesterfield and CLIC Sargent, which helps children with cancer.

On Facebook, organisers thanked everyone for making the event a 'great one' and scores of people replied to say they had a great time.
