Is this the best pub crawl ever?

...it looks like a great way to travel.

TAKE a look at these fan­tas­tic pho­tos of the 10th Bea­cons­field Coun­try Fayre.

Huge crowds took to the streets on Mon­day to watch run­ners take part in the an­nual stretcher race.

The race saw teams of four peo­ple car­ry­ing a fifth per­son on a stretcher as they ran around a gru­elling course of eight pubs, stop­ping at each for a half pint.

Among the many fan­tas­tic fancy dress dis­plays were Mary Berry, Ro­mans and me­dieval war­riors, and chil­dren took part in a young­sters’ race.

Sylvia Jones, co-chair of the coun­try fayre, said: “The sup­port we have re­ceived from lo­cal busi­nesses is re­ally fan­tas­tic and be­cause of their kind gen­eros­ity, we are able to con­tinue to have a free event for the com­mu­nity to en­joy and raise thou­sands of pounds for lo­cal char­i­ties.”

Over the last 10 years the fayre has raised more than £100,000. Si­mon Woolf, one of the event’s or­gan­is­ers, said there were ‘ huge num­bers’ of peo­ple at the fayre.

He said: “A lot of peo­ple said it was a record turn out - it was mobbed. It was re­ally nice, ev­ery­one en­joyed them­selves - it was a lovely at­mos­phere. Peo­ple were com­ing up to us and say thank you. “A big thank you to ev­ery­one that helped out. “Ev­ery­one worked re­ally hard. It’s such a huge help to us in the com­mu­nity.”

He added: “It was re­ally nice to see the com­mu­nity com­ing out in force and en­joy­ing them­selves.

“It was a bril­liant day.”
