may fayre sceneAfter a break for the Royal Jubilee celebrations the Fayre returned on Bank Holiday Monday 27th May

The Fayre was another great day out - our usual mix of good food, live music and
entertainment for the whole family. The weather was very good, for a change and over 1,000 cars came into the village.
Popular events included the cross country run, charity tug of war and the fascinating craft village.
Visitors were able to try out a bungee trampoline, learn circus skills, see a demonstration of falconry and have a go at archery and mini-golf. The Wigston Band, Bakanalia Morris group and the RDC Cheerleaders team entertained a large audience outside the village hall.
Preliminary results indicate that around £7,500 was made for village funds.
