THERE was some crazy antics going on in a Staffordshire Moorlands village at the weekend all in aid of charity.

The Cheddleton Crazy Games took place at Carr's Field on Sunday and saw 11 teams battling it out all kinds of activities.

Participants were seen climbing greasy poles, carrying tyres and splashing around in a large water pond.

Co-organiser Jo Fox said: "A great day was had by everyone. The teams took part in a wide variety of games including an obstacle course which was designed to provide maximum enjoyment for competitors and spectators alike.

"The obstacle course included a greasy pole, carrying tyres, pulling team mates in trucks, and a rope swing over a large pool of water.

"The final games was collecting water in wellies, the water was sent out at great force from a water tank, a fantastic sight and highly amusing to watch from the crowd.

"The winning team was Bagshaws who competed for their second year. The top spot was closely contended and victory came down to the last game "The event was well supported and the committee would like to thank everyone who came to support us.

"We decided to have a free car boot sale on the field this year which was great too.

"Special thanks to Kenny and Christina Carr for allowing us the use of their field and letting us dig big holes in which we filled with water.

"The weather was kind too which definitely helped the day.

"We should raise more than £3,000 profit.

Thank you to all the helpers on the day and the ones who helped set up the week before. This kind event takes a lot of sorting.

"This was the seventh games and we hope to see all the teams next year all trying to secure the top place."
