Luton Airport sponsored the council-led event, as a way of acknowledging the support it receives from local residents.

Activities included a children’s craft marquee, magic show, water zorbing, climbing wall, Punch and Judy, an appearance by St George and his dragon, plus traditional Morris dancing, a Knight challenge and face painting.

On the Sunday, the Scouts held a parade through the town. See this week’s Luton News for more.
