The train service ran throughout Everyone got into the spirit of things We were serenaded at the start of the day And treated to a performance by a local dance group. The BrocSoc tent was selling the “Then and Now” Mass photo A local bootcamp performance got the crowd moving… ..and falling Surrey Docks farm provided some friendly wildlife enjoyed by adults.. ..and kids! Keeping fit has never been so much fun The train was a constant source of amazement There was a huge selection of food on offer .. and drink of course but food and drink are best enjoyed together The BrocSoc BBQ got locals in the summer mood There were tall entertainers and extreme sports plus slides for those with lots of energy to burn The fayre is of course dog friendly but it’s children-only on the fairground rides Dinosaur helium balloons were a big hit The fairground end of the fayre Lunchtime.. Happy days Collecting for charity and making everyone smile! Lots of cakes were donated by the community to fund the event BrocSoc set up more tables and chairs for the tea rooms this year Birds of prey are a regular fixture at the Fayre This owl was very well trained There was plenty of ice-cream to be had The calm proprietor of the veterinary stall There was a sports area for free penalty shootouts Form a queue to score (or miss) a penalty Lots of Caribbean food on offer Everyone found the food tasty There were some real characters… and dogs wanting to get more involved in the event “hook a penguin” was giving out some very popular prizes And the bric a brac stalls were full of vintage wares One of the entertainment highlights was the maypole Hosted by a very energetic, Disney princess! Who kept everyone entertained The maypole drew the crowds whilst others were looking to eat a stonebaked pizza There were a range of games for children to play with freshly cooked Jerk chicken and pork You could see your pizza being made in just 5 minutes… Local food and drink are the real stars of the show Dog owners and dogs alike were getting ready for the dog show As the maypole continued to excite and amaze.. additional characters joied in the maypole fun whilst the crowds looked on A group of children ran in a circle inside the maypole whilst adults held onto the ribbons on the outside Midsummer Fayre Dog balloons also appeared to be a hit With face painting a popular choice Our compere for the day kept the crowd informed and entertained! The maypole princesses perform dances on demand The dog show is taken very seriously, but every dog gets a prize and is a great event for adults, kids and pets!
