Fun for all the family at our first Country Fayre
Friday 30th September 2016
Thank you to everyone who joined us at our first Country Fayre. The sun was shining, cider was flowing and the crowds were smiling. We had a jam packed day with Shearing & Baking Through the Ages interacting with visitors, Purbeck Agility Dog Dancing Displays wowing the audience, group colouring-in with Millie Marotta’s designs and have a go dog racing!
The Dog Olympics also proved to be hugely popular with participants eagerly entering the Dorset Knob & Spoon Race and the Waggiest Tail. Owners and dogs were put through their paces by Ann Bond and team to win a medal and certificate. Our main performance by the Adams Axemen had on lookers on the edge of their seat as they chopped away at their timber whilst cleverly balancing on planks of wood! It was a real treat to have them and also Dorset & Wiltshire Fire & Rescue at our event.
Families enjoyed local stalls who brought some delicious local produce, fine jewellery, a pop up pet photo booth, doggie treats, gorgeous plants and also we had a very special guest from the East Dorset Bat Rescue and Rehabilitation who were full of interesting information about their group.
Everyone's support towards the event was fantastic and all together we raised lots of money for our rescue animals.
A big thank you to everyone supporting the event including Carrington Deane Interpretation, Lindsay Carrington Ecological Services, Staglers, The Adams Axemen, Mr S. Fry & Family, The Mole Hut, Millie Marotta, Purbeck Agility, Bourne Romsey Fire, Arthur Honey, Southern Entertainment, Services, Angel Springs, Ann Bond & Amber, Sarah Hedin & Heidi, A1 Hire, Dorset & Wiltshire Fire & Rescue, CC Moore & Co, Nordale Farm Supplies and LV. Also everyone who donated a raffle prize.
Of course a BIG thank you to all our remarkable volunteers, your help is truly amazing!
