Draycott Strawberry Fayre 2015


Draycott’s Strawberry Fayre will return next month.

The popular event was cancelled last year for the Queen’s 90th birthday celebrations, but will make its comeback on July 22 and 23.

The fair, held on the playing fields next to the Memorial Hall in Latches Lane, will begin with a summer social featuring a ploughman’s supper and disco in the hall.

On July 23 the fields will be awash with activity including children’s sports, a karate display by Diego Giardina, a children’s entertainer and bouncy castle.

There will also be music throughout the afternoon and an egg-throwing competition.

The Strawberry Queen competition will also be held for girls aged eight and over, while girls under the age of eight can compete to be a strawberry princess.

For details, contact Sarah Knight on, or Steve Young on or 07710 298262.
