Fun at historic fair
PUBLISHED: 17:00 11 July 2011
THE streets of Wedmore thronged with people as hundreds visited the village's historic street fair on July 2.
The fair originated from the 13th century, when King Henry III granted a charter allowing a market to be held in the village annually, a tradition revived 30 years ago.
Fair-goers, some of whom were dressed as pirates, were treated to dancing by schoolchildren, a pig roast, and a variety of stalls, while youngsters were delighted by face-painting, games and competitions.
