Magician: Last Saturday Bertie the Magician entertained young and old at the village hall, with lots of audience participation. I understand this was yet a again a really enjoyable event and each child went home with a balloon animal. Delicious home made cakes were served for refreshments and everyone said it had been a lovely afternoon. Thank you to all who attended, £266.60 was made for the village hall window fund.

Fair: The weather was not our friend last Monday morning as we all tried to set up our gazebos and marquees ready for the 1pm opening. The heavens opened and gave us such a deluge, but everyone just kept on working. The rain eased off and the crowds turned out for the opening. by 2pm there was a really good crowd who had a lot of fun despite more rain. Thank you to everyone who manned the stalls, and those who enjoyed them. The music by cream of Hendrix experience was really good, lots of foot tapping and bopping behind our stall. The fun dog show got a lot of entries with a wide variety of breeds, size and colour. Well done to the organisers on yet another successful event.
