Crowds flock to Shalbourne's big day

May Day Fair is best-attended in a decade

SHALBOURNE'S May Day Fair was the pride of the village on Monday, pulling in record crowds for recent years.

Months of hard work for organiser Polly Dickins and her team paid off, with nearly £2,000 being raised for local good causes.

There were more than 25 craft stalls plus a cornucopia of other attractions including a dog show, face painting, cake decoratong, skittles, coconut shy, swing boats, trampoline, cream teas and barbecues.

The event was held on the village green and Ms Dickins said afterwards: “people I spoke to said it was the biggest crowd theyn had seen at the event for the past 10 years, which is wonderful.

“The cream teas in the village hall raised lots of money for the Shalbourne Community Fund and the country dancing by Shalbourne primary School pupils was a real hit. There was even a colouring competition to keep the youngsters occupied.”

Music was provided by the Hungerford Town Band.
