Thurlow Village Fayre.

On Sunday 3rd, we all, and when I say we all it didn’t really include all of us, Mr S stayed at home to work on his website, went to visit my aunt at her local village fayre which was in the village of Thurlow, just a few minutes from Haverhill.

We must have arrived shortly after 1 so we went straight to find something to eat, cant beat a bit of WI cakes!!

Once we had some food (cakes are food shush) in our bellies we went off to find my aunt and uncle, who owns and runs his own composting company Field Compost and no I wasnt paid to shamelessly plug their company haha, but once we found them, K and A then found the rides!

This was the single highest thing I have seen in a while, I am always nervous about giant blow up rides but they loved it! I think they got roughly 5 minutes on each and I think this one was the most popular one of all.

While they went on the giant slide, I decided to go for a little walk around and see what else I could find, the band had a little crowd around it, enjoying their teas and listening to various music being played by beautiful brass instruments, I love how they weren’t fazed by the smaller fans walking around between them.

There was lots of other fun things to do and see too, K wanted to badly go on the wired trampoline but the line was just so long that it made more sense for him to find something else to do, they were both to short to go into the giant ball things, thank goodness and I had a go at the plate smash game, took out my frustrations of recent events on a brown plate haha!

There was so many different stands, plenty of wonderful handmade items to buy and try, pancakes and BBQ to eat, it was such a lovely day, the only real downside of it all was everything was just so expensive, but so wonderful!

Mine and K’s favorite was probably all the old cars that they had on display, They had some beautiful ones, including a really old Ford which smelt incredible when they started the engine, I love classic old cars!

The day ended with a traditional welly throw competition, which I mentioned on twitter, The children thought it was really funny, However there was a few stray welly boots that went into the audience, no one was hurt of course!!

It was such a nice day, the rain held off until the very end when we was heading home, I love visiting my aunt and uncles little village, its my dream to live somewhere like that in future, away from the noise of a town.

Until next time
