Bryher's Fete and inaugural Music Festival was a big success, with an estimated 2,000 people attending over the course of the day.

Last Sunday afternoon kicked off with the island's annual fete between 1pm and 3.45pm, after which local bands The Pie Trio, Southern Comfort, Touching Cloth, All Squared Up and The Steam Band entertained the crowds during the music festival.

It is hoped that this year's event will raise a record amount of money for the upkeep of the community centre, as well as other projects on the island.

Robyn Bennett from Bryher Community Association said: "We would like to thank Kathy Stedeford for organising the fete. She has organised the fete for several years and every year has increased the fete total.

"We're also grateful to the Isles of Scilly Steamship Company Community Panel for its contribution to the darts football board, which was a big hit and will certainly have made a significant contribution to our total.

"Finally we'd also like to thank David Dan and all the musicians for all their hard work with the music festival. It was professionally organised with a fantastic turnout from extremely talented Scillonian bands.
