BACKGROUND

The first Olde English Fair was held in 1982 in the grounds of St George's Anglican Church.

Thousands of visitors attended and had a wonderful time with demonstrators, activities, costumes, morris dancers, may pole, singers, musicians.

Great home made cakes and sweets abounded, and there was food to meet all needs: ploughman's lunch, hamburgers, sausage in a blanket, soft drinks.

Crafts were high on the agenda and many demonstrators made this an annual event.

Children were well catered for with games, rides and activities.
