Jack Sparrow delighted crowds at a traditional village fete at the weekend. 

The star of the Pirates of the Caribbean film series made an appearance at Wooburn fete on Saturday afternoon alongside Disney princesses Belle and Rapunzel. 

The traditional celebration, which took place on The Green, was held for the fifth time since the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee in 2012. 

This year, crowds flocked to the village to enjoy cream teas, a barbecue, water zorbing and bungee trampolines as part of the Wooburn Residents' Association fete.

Maidenhead Concert Band and The Sappers Singer both performed throughout the day, while children from St Paul's Combined School and The Meadows School danced and sang in front of their proud parents. 

Youngsters also tested their strength in a tug of war race which saw them pull the Parish Council's tractor - which is usually used to cut the grass - with Jack Sparrow sitting on the front. 

A host of organisations from across Wooburn and Bourne End also came to the fete, with representatives from the parish council, the WI, Guides and Brownies and churches in area present, along with the emergency services.

Kids also took part in dance competitions held by performer John Johnny. 

Margaret Amos, secretary to the residents' association, said Saturday afternoon was a "sight to behold" and praised the 1st Wooburn Scout for their "amazing support", putting up tents and gazebos and providing refreshments.

She said: “We could not have been happier with how everything went.  

"It is wonderful to see the community coming together like this and it was particularly pleasing to see that people did not visit for just a quick whizz around the Green – they spent money, they sat on the grass and chatted to friends, they listened to the music. 

"It really was a lovely afternoon”.  

Money raised from the fete will go towards community projects to benefit the whole parish, including the Christmas lights which illuminate the Green each December.
