We carried on in
The annual Kennington Fayre was still at full capacity on Saturday despite heavy rain.
It began with the sound of an air raid siren, but it was the weather that forced visitors to take cover.
This year’s event had a 1940s theme, marking the 70th anniversary of Kennington’s Victory Celebration of June 1946, held on the same recreation ground in Ulley Road.
Community forum chairman Chris Morely said the day was still good, even if the ground did get a bit muddy.
He said: “We opened up at noon, but by 1.30pm the rain had come in so a few of the arena events had to be cancelled.
“The stalls kept going in the best traditional way and we finished with a dog show. We carried on until the end.
“There was 1940s themed music and people came dressed in 1940s style.”
Prizes for the best costumes were won by Ursula Jones, Jill Harrison and Vikki Gower.
Among the attractions were 35 stalls, a children’s fun fair, tombolas and a beer slide,
