It was back to the future for everyone who joined in the fun at Cockerham Sports Day on Saturday.

Under a blazing sun, crowds turned out to watch the parade, which this year marked the event’s 60th anniversary.

And those taking part celebrated by dressing up in outfits from years gone by, including punk rockers, extras from Grease, revellers from the Queen’s Coronation and the 1960s and 1980s.

Some of the event’s 40 previous queens also attended the day, as well as this year’s newly crowned sports queen Jenny Lawson and her attendants.
