Village’s Strawberry Fair returns after absence

Families flocked to Draycott at the weekend to take part in the village’s first Strawberry Fair for two years.
With last year’s event called off due to the Queen’s 90th birthday celebrations, villagers enjoyed the activities on offer at the memorial hall this year more than ever.
The weekend’s schedule kicked off with the popular summer social dinner, with about 120 people settling down for a ploughman’s supper before a disco provided by Nick Burrett.
Although the wet weather conditions forced cancellations to many of the outdoor activities, guests enjoyed a range of stalls and games inside the hall.
Steve Young, fair treasurer, said: “Although takings will be down we are hoping to make a profit which will be donated to village organisations.
“We thank all the people and trade stands which turned up to support us in very difficult conditions.”
