VILLAGE FAIR REPORT

This yearís Village Fair was a great success with a good crowd in attendance for the whole afternoon.

The School PTA pulled out all the stops and provided some amazing

inflatables which kept the children amused and there must have been some parents who would like to have had a bout on the Gladiator podium. The PTA dads did a great job on the bar and BBQ too.

Stall holders included Sally Hudson from Danecourt Nurseries who came with her usual supply of beautiful plants. She kindly filled the flower beds in front of the village hall before the Fair began.

Other regulars were the WI, Felbridge Horticultural Society, Felbridge History Group, St Johnís Church and Felbridge Parish Council. It was a first-time for the Roshe School of Dance and we are grateful to them for providing entertainment during the afternoon in the form of dance classes for children.

Children were also entertained at the craft tent run by St Johnís Church and they also organised some childrenís races.

There was great excitement when a Tug-of-War team from St Johnís challenged a scratch team to beat them - which they did!

There were five entries in the childrenís competition for a ĎGarden on a Plateí and it was difficult to choose a winner in the two age groups represented. However, the Bingham sisters were the prize winners. (Lesley - Ann Morley will have their full names and the name of the judge.)

Once again the Guides did a great job providing much-needed refreshments which included some delicious home-made cakes.

Church stalls included second-hand books, Lucky Dip, Penalty Shoot Out, Tin Can Alley and a scrumptious Hog Roast.

The number of stalls at this yearís Village Fair was greater than ever before and the great turnout meant that all our local groups, charities and organisations raised much-needed funds. A big thank-you to everyone who came.
