Bradfield holds 40th annual Mayfayre





Bradfield held its 40th annual Mayfare on the bank holiday weekend.

On May 6, hundreds of people turned up despite the wet weather and took advantage of the abundance of games and craft stalls on offer — not to mention the beer and cider tent.

The Rev Steve Newbold officially opened the Mayfayre.

Then Maisie the May Queen entered the ring with her attendants, Florence and Tyler, in their horse-drawn carriage under umbrellas.

The Maypole dancers stuck to their task wearing waterproofs rather than their usual outfits.

The Women’s Institute did a roaring trade providing both tea, coffee, cakes and shelter.

The organisers are grateful to all the sponsors for their help including McVeigh Parker, Parkers Estate Agents, Boot Farm Stables and Steve Walters.

They also thank the committee for providing an excellent afternoon’s entertainment and to all the visitors who attended.
