FOXES invaded Tosside at the weekend.

The village held its annual fox festival, which started in 2005 to celebrate its vulpine links.

Tosside is derived from Todd, the old fashioned name for a fox, and the animal is depicted on the Queen Victoria jubilee memorial outside St Bartholomew's Church.

This year’s festival had the theme Through The Ages and included a fun fox-trail for families with small children and a flower festival at the church.
