There was a real buzz around the grounds of Insch Hospital with the highly anticipated return of Insch Strawberry Fayre, the final extravaganza of the Insch Jubilee Weekender.

The sun shone on the event with temperatures in the park soaring to 23, making it the perfect weather for some cooling strawberries and ice cream or a refreshing visit to the tea tent.

The barbecue was also a hit in the summer sunshine.

There were a variety of stalls run by local groups, including snacks by Insch Guides, break the crockery and homebakes from the young farmers and a rocket launching challenge run by Insch Scouts.

There were also various inflatable and dodgems adding to the fun.

Over in the Kid Zone young people could get their face painted, adopt a teddy and watch balloon sculptures being made.

There was also the opportunity to participate in a magic show with Gary Seagraves or meet author Kimberley Hamilton and Bookbug.

Entertainment was provided throughout the afternoon by local musicians and Leanne Macveigh Dance Academy

60 runners took part in the popular Dunnydeer Hill Race, with Joe Burr recording the fastest time of 29 minutes and 26 seconds.
