Sunday 17th August POTTER HEIGHAM COUNTRY FAYRE








It's always a compliment to be invited back after opening an event such as this and it's now our fourth year at this lovely Country Fayre.
We love the fact that it's more of your traditional occasion with straw bales round the arena, old tractors, vintage cars and the real feel of the community spirit.
Every year we've arrived in the arena by a different mode of transport. Last year it was a stretched limo but this year it was a tractor and trailer. Fortunately the manure was already spread so as you can see I made myself at home on the bench in my country squires outfit!

Here's some of our friends from The East Coast Truckers fund raising again. The big Convoy is next Sunday don't forget.
Also wee represented were members of the NICE Society who bring along their lovingly restored engines to chug away to the delight of the crowd old and young.
Here I am on one of the vintage tractors in the line-up. I can remember working on a farm in my school holidays and always trying to get behind the wheel of one
of these. Never did get the chance so you can't blame me for

taking advantage now although I didn't get her started.

Just behind me was an old horseless carriage which had been partly restored and just look at the motorbike on show. Right next to the Hillman Imp Police car. Can't be many of them around now. Imagine if they were still in use! Included in the pics below are the charity auction which raised over £700 and the dog racing which culminated in the handlers final when the humans got to run down the course. Question is, was the girl in the lead pushed or did she trip? A great afternoon supported by a fine break in the weather netting around £3,500 for the MIDAS Charity who'll be spreading it over a number of good causes. If you came along thanks for your support and well done everyone involved on a magnificent show.
