Two lovely days


By Gee19


This last weekend was the village country fair – so all eyes were on the weather for the weekend but Saturday was warm and sunny with just a little cloud….

During the weekend bands played…..

…and various animals showed off their paces.

There were reminders of days gone by……

….and examples of man’s fascination with machinery…..

Some spectacular flying machines…..

…including WW2 planes that I wasn’t quick enough to catch on camera!!

My favourite ‘flyers’ of the whole weekend was those who took part in the displays put on by Xtreme Falconry….

There were peregrin falcons, a lovely little barn owl, an eagle owl and my favourite the vulture called Damien!

Isn’t he handsome?

Sunday’s weather was a little more cloudy than the Saturday but it didn’t rain, thank goodness. This second day included a motor show, kit cars, vintage and veteran cars and motorbikes and a large display of army vehicles.

As it neared 5 o’clock and the end of the two-day event, our local Sea Scouts played The Dam Busters theme as a group a veterans from WW2 were brought into the arena by jeeps.

The Last Post was played in memory of those who lost their lives…..

…a very fitting and moving end to a great weekend, a real family event.

I hope you enjoyed this ‘taster’ of our village Show – and you didn’t even have to pay to get in!!
