More than £1,000 has been raised at this year's Draycott Strawberry Fayre.

Despite some less-than-welcoming weather conditions during the July event, held at the Memorial Hall, organisers are celebrating collecting a total of £1,130 which will be shared between village groups.

Draycott Football Club, Draycott Memorial Hall, the Draycott Playing Fields Committee, and Draycott and Rodney Stoke First School Parents, Teachers and Friends of the School have already been given donations.

This year’s fair was the first to be held for two years after the 2016 event was put on hold due to the Queen’s 90th birthday celebrations.

The organising committee will host its annual meeting at the Strawberry Special Inn, in Station Road, at 8pm on September 26.
