Afraid I got there rather late and missed the procession but as usual all the Rottingdean stalwarts had turned out to support this fantastic annual event on the village green.
This year however some newcomers too.
I loved this tower, where under the professional guidance of a rock climber, children were harnessed up to climb a rock simulation.
Equally appealing a super young couple
busy creating balloon designs.
. Eat your heart out Princess Bea … look at this!
Book stalls, jam and honey, food, Arty Pharty, The Whiteways Centre, Rottingdean flower arranging and bric a brac on sale to support The Royal Air Force.
The local drama group set up a good game for youngsters as did the local Scout group and their were some sheep to stroke from the Downland people.
On stage all and everything – drummers, singers and jazz, but one of the highlights included Jay Parmar who performed with an accomplished singer, the wonderful Eugene Butcher!
They may be more in keeping with a rock concert, but both were personable and appealing on the village green too.
Jay is local and teaches the guitar by the way.
A Fayre like this takes months of effort to arrange. It relies on plenty of volunteers too to sell programmes, look after the car park etc. So well done everyone!
A great day out and full of surprises so worth putting in your diary for next year?
