June Newsletter

It almost feels as if summer is upon us and we are now only 3 months from the Fayre and Horse Show.

Following our move to the new site, the Classic Car section has been growing year on year and undoubtedly benefits from the position at the top of the Fayre field, where the vehicles can be seen (and heard, in the case of the Cobras!) from most of the site.  As a result, we wanted to make this year more “agriculturally” orientated and wish to encourage classic tractors and similar vehicles to be shown.  We know that there are a several tractor enthusiasts in the village, so please bring your machinery along to the Fayre.  They don’t have to be fully (or even partly) restored but do need brakes as the field has a slight slope….  Any questions or enquiries to me, please.

Last year, the children enjoyed the Hildsvin Saxon/Viking re-enactment; they are back this year with a bigger display, so get the date in the diary for a really good family day out!  Don’t forget, we make no charge for parking or entry and all proceeds go to local charities and community activities.

Tickets for the Grand Draw will be on sale shortly; if you would like to help by selling tickets, please let me know and I can arrange for you to have a batch.

The Horse Show will include some new classes this year: we are bringing in Arab and Part Bred Arab classes plus Best Turned Out (all).  Sadly, no jumping this year (we are unable to get the jumps plus experienced support), but we hope to have that resolved for next year, so please be patient!

Finally, please don’t forget to call in at the Village Shop on the way in and or out of the Fayre – they will be providing services that we cannot cover at the Fayre and this is an opportunity to give this valuable Community asset a great boost in turnover.

Enjoy the May Bank Holiday!
