Becca Lobb was our spy at this year’s St Ewe Country Fair, she sent in this report from the goings on… sounds like a lovely day, even the sun decided to shine this year!
“Yet again this year the small village of St. Ewe hosted its annual Country Fair which proved, as ever, to be a fantastic day for everyone involved! Miraculously the sun shone on us and the day was a huge success raising money for a number of local charities but in particular this year, the Cornish branch of the Samaritans, the Cornwall Deaf and also Cornwall Blind Associations. As you wandered about the Fair you were invited to meet some beautiful birds of prey, watch the magnificent shire horses, admire brilliant sheepdog demonstrations (surely the cleverest sheepdogs around -they could even round up ducks!) , listen to a brass band, browse at local craft stalls, grab a bargain from the car boot, have a bounce on a bouncy castle, win yourself a coconut, sample some of our fantastic local produce in the farmers’ market, get crafty with your children making underwater creatures in the kids’ marquee, howl with laughter at Craig Johnson’s wonderful puppet show, join in with Punch and Judy, admire some simply fantastic cakes, flowers and veggies in the horticultural show and finish it all off with a delicious pork and stuffing roll courtesy of the refreshments tent. The day could never go ahead without such fantastic committed volunteers, many of whom give up hours throughout the year planning the event. On the day over 90 people volunteered their time so well done and thank you to all of those involved!
Hopefully all of those visiting the Fair on their holidays will reminisce about that lovely Fair where you could sit in the sunshine with a cream tea and soak up the best of Cornwall!”
