The Medieval May Fayre
KING ARTHUR AND HIS KNIGHTS OF THE ROUND TABLE
Wall to wall sunshine spread over the day this year and the fayre was a great success. There were stall galore selling things as diverse as cakes, bric a brac, tombola, hog roast, honey and gifts. There were ice creams from a ‘stop-me-and-buy-one tricycle, cream teas at the ’round table’ and hot dogs too. Archery was available in the field and maypole dancing in the arena. Face painting was popular as was ‘decorating yur own cup cake’. The May King and Queen were crowned and prizes given to to winners in the fancy dress themed competition. The professional juggler amazed us with his skill.
The school children had all entered a competition of themed art work and poetry and the entries were displayed in the decorated church.
Outside was a bouncy castle and a taster ‘Messy Church’ where children drew around their feet and stuck the decorated cut outs on a long banner headed Friends of Jesus and went away with a balloon and sweets. This will be starting in the school hall in the autumn. People were also able to participate in adding a ‘button for a soldier’ as we make our banners remembering the centenary of the start of WW1.
There was medieval music in the church whilst people enjoyed the coolness whilst they ate.
