The warm weather and sunshine attracted people to this year’s fair as stalls were displayed on the village recreational ground and also in the memorial hall.

Draycott Football Club, St Peter’s Church members and the South West Tractor Pullers Association were also there on the day.

Gerald Daley and Tony Symonds both opened the event, with the pair now having relinquished their positions after running the fair for 47 years.

Draycott Strawberry Fair’s new organiser is Danielle Green.

This year’s Strawberry Queen was announced as Kiki Green, aged 10, who is a student at Fairlands Middle School.

The princesses picked on the day were Nina Baldwin, aged seven, and five-year-old Miah-Rose Green, who are both pupils at Draycott and Rodney Stoke First School.
