A BLUSTERY day was had by all at the Eggardon Kite Festival.

Flying fans flocked to the West Dorset venue to take part in the annual event, which included kite workshops and other activities.

Kite flyers young and old then took their creations to the skies and made the most of the windy weather.

The popular festival is held on Eggardon Hill, an iron age hillfort near Powerstock, and proceeds will be donated to Powerstock School, Powerstock Hut, Weir Sports Club and the Weldmar Hospicecare Trusts.
