Rain doesn’t stop fair crowds

MORE than 300 people attended a summer fair in Sonning Common on Saturday despite unseasonal drizzle.

MORE than 300 people attended a summer fair in Sonning Common on Saturday despite unseasonal drizzle.

The event was hosted by Sonning Common Primary School in Grove Road and attractions included games, stalls and a barbecue as well as a bouncy castle and face-painting for children.

The theme of the fair was “outdoors” so there were activities such as whittling wood, making dream catchers and buildng bug “hotels”.

Children were given the chance to hold Incy-Wincy, a tarantula brought along by Owen Mayes of Owen’s Animals.

The event raised £4,000, which will go towards running workshops for different year groups and new equipment for the school.



Pam Saker, chairwoman of the school’s parent-teacher association, said: “I thought it was a very well attended event despite the weather. The atmosphere was lovely, especially as it was attended by so many people from the village as well as children and parents from the school.”

She thanked all the parents who helped out on the day.
