Eastcombe children had fun at the 10th annual gnome hunt on June 29 and 30.

Hosted by Eastcombe Primary School, gnomes of all shapes and sizes were placed around the village.

Participants were tasked with finding 70 gnomes and collecting clues.

Those that managed to solve the puzzle won a gnome of their own to keep.

There were also craft stalls and a knitted gnome tombola.
