HUNDREDS of families attended the second annual Strawberry Fayre at the Hardwick Estate in Whitchurch.

The event, hosted by the estate’s Tolhurst organic farm, had a vintage theme and included a hair makeover stall, an old-fashioned swing for children, storytelling sessions and gardening workshops.

Strawberries and other soft fruit grown on the estate were on sale along with home-made cakes, preserves and summer drinks.

Organiser Tamara Tolhurst said: “It went very well and was extremely successful. The weather helped because it didn’t rain and everyone who turned up was happy and enjoying themselves.”

The farm will host its fourth annual squash and pumpkin festival later this year.
