NO DAMPENING OF SPIRITS
CROWDS ignored the miserable Bank Holiday weather by going along to Beaconsfield Country Fayre in their droves.
The fayre went ahead on Monday, August 31 in Windsor End, with a host of attractions taking place on the day.
Among the events on offer were go karts for children, live music, a classic car show, a dog show, a bird of prey display and a climbing wall.
In the afternoon there was also the traditional stretcher race, which involves teams of four in fancy dress carrying a fifth person around a course of seven pubs, stopping for half a pint at each one.
A course was also organised for children, who carried a teddy bear around a shorter alcohol free route.
Simon Woolf, one of the event’s organisers, said: “Despite the weather, the Beaconsfield community again showed its support for the country fayre.
“The weather wasn’t as bad as last year, when it was torrential, and there was a good turn out of people throughout the day.
“There was so much going on and so much to enjoy. I’d like to thank all of our sponsors who made it possible.”
All proceeds from the fayre will go to charity, but the amount raised has not yet been calculated.
