A FAYRE has been described as ‘the biggest, best, most wonderful event ever’ by members of the Stubbington Fayre Committee.

The event, which has been held every August bank holiday weekend for over forty years, exceeded expectations and pulled in the crowds.

There were over 140 stalls on the Stubbington recreation ground off Bells Lane.

Firm crowd favourite, the Donkey derby, was the highlight of the day. The derby saw six races run with five runners in each race, each winner receiving a rosette and the over-all winner receiving a trophy.

The Big Noise Community Samba were just one of the attractions that boosted this years’ head count.

‘They raised the spirit of the day with the noise; they put so much energy into it. They were so exuberant it wore you out as a spectator,’ said Stubbington Fayre committee member Reg Norton.

The fayre, organised by the Stubbington Fayre Committee, boasted a fun fair and a majorettes display from The Locks Heath Silhouette Majorettes.

Another attraction which exploded onto the scene this year was the vintage car display.

Reg said that the success of the event was down to the efforts of all those involved, but in particular wanted to thank Clive Nixon for the time, effort and commitment he put in.
