Representatives from the Showman's Guild escorted councillors around a number of rides.

The councillors enjoyed their traditional ride on the dodgems before moving onto other rides.

The rides were open to the public until Sunday.

Town Clerk Terry Jordan was hopeful the fair was well supported.

He said: "The numbers of people present on the opening night were the highest we have seen for a number of years."
