CROWHURST was a hive of activity last weekend when the annual village fayre and horticultural show took place on the recreation ground.

The event kicked off with the 1066 Rockit Men, who provided a lively evening of music, before the fayre began the following morning.

Olympic torchbearer Lawrence Page opened the event, which featured traditional stalls and games, plus entertainment from the Section 5 Drummers, stilt walkers and bellydancers.
