THOU­SANDS of peo­ple flocked to the an­nual Chal­font St Giles vil­lage show for yet another suc­cess­ful year.

A crowd of about 7,000 at­tended the event on Satur­day, which was held Cameron Farm in Nar­cot Lane.

Or­gan­is­ers of the show, which has been run­ning for more than a cen­tury, use what­ever sur­plus money is left over to do­nate to lo­cal good causes.

Garry Brown, chair­man of Busi­ness and Traders for Chal­font St Giles (BAT4CSG), said it went re­ally well.

He added: “It ac­tu­ally ran like clockwork through­out. I asked peo­ple to rate it out of 10, and I was get­ting eights and nines. Peo­ple were en­joy­ing it. Our job is to cre­ate a day out for the vil­lage.”

He con­tin­ued: “We were ab­so­lutely mobbed with peo­ple. I would like to say a mas­sive thank you for all the sup­port we got, and for the hun­dreds of helpers that help us out on the day.”

And ac­cord­ing to Mr Brown he won’t be short of help next year say­ing that a num­ber of peo­ple asked if they could join him.

He said: “We had a num­ber of peo­ple come up to us dur­ing the show say­ing, we’re re­ally en­joy­ing this, I’d love to join your team.”

Mr Brown also said that next year the team will make ev­ery ef­fort to bring the show back into the cen­tre of the vil­lage af­ter hold­ing it at the farm in the past two years.

He said: “We’re go­ing to make ev­ery ef­fort to get back into the vil­lage, come hell or high wa­ter.”
