Organisers are urging people to join them for an afternoon of fun at the Southleigh Village Fayre on Wednesday, August 11, from 2pm to 5pm
Beryl Godfrey from the organising team said: “We are planning the usual fun. Loads of attractions to keep the kids happy: games, ice cream, duck herding, farm animals including the always popular sheep racing and a parade of vintage tractors.
“And for the adults, they can relax with a local beer or cider. There is a traditional tea and cake tent, barbecue and plenty of market stalls to pick up excellent local crafts, plants and goodies.”
Tim from Wiscombe Cider will be bringing along his vintage steam traction engine and demonstrating the art of cider making with his donkey driven cider press.
Beryl added: “Dogs! bring your handlers and enter the family dog show, its just for fun. The fayre will be kept in order by our very own TV celebrity Graham Barton from Homes under the Hammer.
“We donate all the profits to local charities and our historic village church and hall. We hope to see you there.”
