On Bank Holiday Sunday 28 August, Ruddington Parish Council held their first ever Summer Fayre. Thankfully, the weather was good for most of the day with only one short downpour to dampen the proceedings!
The Fayre was well supported by Ruddington families and those from the surrounding areas. There was something on offer for everybody, with stalls selling everything from handbags to cupcakes! For the children there were fairground rides, face painting and Ruddington Fun craft activities inside the Project Body building.
The programme of live entertainment included a disco from Alan Whitehead, live music from folk band ‘A Squeeze of Lemming’, singer Paul Friday and a demonstration of a keep fit class by a Project Body instructor.
The Punch and Judy show was extremely popular with both children and adults – no doubt bringing back memories of seaside holidays! Another big attraction was the parrots and owls from the Under our Wing Avian Sanctuary. The parrots kept everybody entertained all day with their banter and singing!
Ruddington Scouts were able to raise some funds for their group using the stocks, with volunteers making a donation in return for having wet sponges thrown at them!
Ruddington Parish Council would like to say a big ‘Thank You’ to anyone who helped to make this event a huge success. If you’d like to see some live action from the day, you can find a video on Youtube taken by a representative from Aero Visual Services Ltd. RPC Events Group
