The Knowstone Village Fair and Show was a great success
On the 16th June Knowstone held its annual Village Fair and Show and raised £1138.09 for Parish Hall funds. The damp weather did not dampen spirits and locals and those from further afield turned out in force in support the village event. Peter Heaton-Jones MP officially opened the event.
Much fun was to be had splatting the rat, tying to win one of the many prizes on the over-flowing tombola stall, smashing plates and cups courtesy of Richard Reid and his chipped crockery, welly whanging, visiting the various stalls offering bric-a-brac, books, bread, potatoes, gifts and toiletries or taking refreshment in the hall, at the cake stall, at the burger stall or supping on cider!
A row of classic cars were on display and served as the perfect backdrop to the The Masons Arms where drinks were on offer courtesy of Mark and Sarah.
In the hall various competition entries were on display. Photographs adorned the walls, cakes and handicraft on the tables and inside the church the floral displays could be seen. Late in the afternoon brave Teddy Bears were parachuted from the church roof with all but one successfully achieving their mission of touchdown in the churchyard. A rescue mission has yet to mounted for the Bear stuck on the church roof.
Thanks to everyone involved in creating a great village event. Details of the 2019 Fair will be announced in due course.
