AN AMAZ­ING 7,000 peo­ple, in­clud­ing Scar­let Shaw, four, and brother Cain, six en­joyed the fun and games at Chal­font St Giles Vi­lage Show at the week­end

THOU­SANDS of peo­ple at­tended the Chal­font St Giles Vil­lage Show on Satur­day.

The event in­cluded teth­ered bal­loon rides, a sheep show, a fal­conry cen­tre, mo­tor­bike stunts and more attractions in its big­gest cel­e­bra­tion yet.

The show could have been scrapped due to its usual site re­main­ing wa­ter­logged fol­low­ing the win­ter’s weather, but or­gan­is­ers held the event at Cameron Farm, in Nar­cot Lane, on Satur­day after an agree­ment with landowner Michael Tucker.

Show chair­man Rob Fowler: “It was a phe­nom­e­nal day.

“We were amazed at the amount of peo­ple who came. We had a lot of re­ally good com­ments and were very happy that the crowds sup­ported the show.

“It was a lit­tle bit of a risk mov­ing up there but if we didn’t the show would have been can­celled.”
