Cllr David Evans, East Hampshire District councillor for Horndean, is the driving force behind the scheme.

He said: ‘The brewery has played a major part in the history of Horndean and so it is wonderful that we are able to mark that fact with a fantastic piece of community art.

‘Not only will the piece serve as permanent legacy for the people of Horndean but it will also be a community event in its own right.’

The fayre will be held at Five Heads Road, Horndean from 11am-5pm, followed by a barn dance from 7.30pm-11pm.
