Crowds queued at the ice cream van at the Fair which was started with country dancing by the Witley Infant School children, followed by an energetic Zumba session a variety of children’s races, Punch & Judy in the shade under the copper beech tree and music from Godalming College Jazz Band.
The Arden Holford School of Ballet delighted those taking respite from the sun with refreshments provided by All Saints Church in the Chichester Hall before the popular dog show and Grand Draw back in the heat outside.
Fullers Brewery kindly provided “Griffin” and “Pride” two magnificent heavy horses pulling the expertly driven Fullers Dray, giving rides throughout the afternoon for those wanting a relaxing break from the hustle and bustle of the fair. Sean was very busy all afternoon showing visitors his military land rover and display of 1970s & 80s Army equipment
After tucking into the BBQ, beer tent, jacket potatoes, Indian snacks, donuts and strawberries families joined in with a variety of activities on offer from many community groups. These included the human fruit machine, hook a duck, rehome a teddy, guess the name of the flamenco, buzz wire, coconut shy, hoopla, tombola’s and speed camera challenge, face painting, bowl the batsman and much more.
As well as raising funds for Witley’s community groups taking part, a sum of £700 was raised for this year’s charity, The Hydon Hill Cheshire Home. Thanks to all our visitors for coming and all the community groups and charities who run such fun side stalls.
Look forward to seeing you all again in 2018!
