SIR - It was a great shame it rained all day, more or less, getting wetter as the day wore on, so no doubt the funds raised on Saturday at West Down Village Fair will be down on last year.

But, that said, the standard of football played by all the youngsters taking part in the six-a-side tournament improved with every match, making them a pleasure to watch, in spite of the rain.

A very large thank-you should go to all who organised the event.

Ilfracombe Youth took on all-comers again to win, competing against West Down, Berrynarbor and Ilfracombe school teams, giving those spectators who stayed the course a good final needle match between Ilfracombe Youth and Berrynarbor.

Thank you, West Down, for giving these youngsters a chance to show off their skills, even if that wasn't the sole object of the exercise. We all even took a moment to cheer the RAF Chivenor helicopter as it flew past.
