FUN AT THE FAYRE

Saturday 6th July, the morning started off raining overcast and dank, not a promising start to the day for the annual Crosspool Summer Fayre.2019 summer fayre collage

After a last-minute rush erecting the marquees, gazebos and inflating the bouncy castle/slide; the Fayre was officially open by the Rev. Suzanna Nockles. Happily the clouds had moved away to allow the warm sun to shine, on what turned out to be a wonderful afternoon for the many visitors to enjoy an upbeat performance by the ever-popular Scoil Rince Nua Irish Dancers – a rousing dance routine by the LMW Dance troop – Henry the cheeky monkey up to his usual tricks with the children’s favourite entertainer Barney Baloney –  the big band sound of Glenn Miller by the Ambassador Swing Band performing to a full audience, enjoying a cream tea provided by the Crosspool WI.

The local Holly Hagg Alpacas and Llama were a big favourite with the children as was the face painting, Henna Tattooed art and the traditional side stalls/attractions – wet sponge. splat the rat, archery, coconut shy, books, bric-a-brac, hot dogs, burgers, ice creams to mention but a few.
Dave Bolsover’s amazing family guitar stall gave budding musicians the chance to have a go at strumming, possibly to stardom.

Later in the afternoon the 2019 Crosspool Festival scarecrow competition winners and raffle winners were presented with their prizes. All the children received a gift for a happy smile.

The Crosspool Forum organisers would like to thank all this year’s sponsors, the team of local people that turned up in the rain to help set up the event and everyone for attending and making this year’s Crosspool Summer Fayre a special day for everyone. Thank you.
