ONE OF Hampshire's biggest summer took place over the weekend.

Thousands of people flocked to the Netley Marsh Steam and Craft Show, formerly the Netley Marsh Steam Rally, which ran from Friday to Sunday.

The show was first held in 1971 to raise funds for nearby St Matthew's Church, which was in urgent need of repair.

Originally called The Puff-in, it started out as a one-day event but is now a three-day attraction which raises thousands of pounds for charity in the Netley Marsh area.

This year's entertainment included "action-packed£ displays by the Galloping Acrobats, a stunt team who perform a raft of gravity-defying tricks on horseback.

A children's entertainer called Fiery Jack also took part.
