Thank you to everybody who attended and made the 21st Barrel Fair one of the best years ever. The weather was perfect, not hot enough to entice people to the beach and hence they enjoyed their day in Westleton. There are a few photos of this years event posted and there will be some more at a later date. Make a date in your diary for the 22nd Barrel Fair on 21st August 2016 and also for the Barrel Fair Coffe morning on Saturday 5th December at 10.30 in Westleton Village Hall, followed later in the day by a Christmas party for local children.
Highlights of the racing this year were the Crown team winning the coveted Docwra-Holmes Trophy, they have not been successful for a couple of years so are delighted with their win. In the allcomers races, siblings Toby and Amy Ivens were victorious and the Westleton winners were husband and wife - Jonathan and Karen Alexander.
Music was provided by the Random Blues Company and Doc and Jilly on the pondside stage. The Middleton School musicians played early in the day and were very much appreciated.
Other attractions included many craft and food stalls, Rumburgh Morris, Punch and Judy, donkey rides, races for children and much more.
The amount raised for use within the village was in excess of £4,000 (despite the increasing cost of insurance etc) and the Barrel Fair Committee are delighted with the result.
