A 1950s all-weather fair
THE grand opening of Cranmore Village Fayre will take place on Monday at 2pm and will be opened by former Mid Somerset News & Media editor, Philip Welch.
Cranmore Community Group have adopted the idea of an all weather, all encompassing fair for residents and visitors over the August Bank Holiday.
The hall, playing fields, pub, church and East Somerset Railway will all be taking on a 1950's theme for the day.
The village hall will be housing a photographic exhibition, refreshments and entertainment including a 1950s and 60s band and a group of lindy hoppers.
The pub will be putting on a barbecue as well as a bouncy castle.
Meanwhile, the church will be demonstrating bell ringing and giving people the opportunity to have a go themselves.
Those attending will not only have a chance of taking part in the prize draw or silent auction but there is a guaranteed prize for all programme purchasers – free entry to visit Cranmore Tower for the following week.
Parish council chairman, Grant Bolton, said: "This promises to be a good event for all the family and it is great to see the whole village taking part. The event is open to all and 50s 60s attire is definitely encouraged."
Entry to the event will be £1 for adults and free to under 12s.
The event is open to both residents and non residents.
