HUNDREDS of people attended St George’s Day celebrations in Watlington on Saturday.

The fourth annual festival, organised by Watlington Business Association, included a performance by the Towersey Morris Men.

Watlington in Bloom, the Women’s Institute, Rainbow Corner day nursery and Watlington Pre-School were among the community group stallholders in High Street.

Children enjoyed fairground rides and icing St George’s flag biscuits at the Watlington Primary School stall.

Other attractions included local food producers Christmas Common Conserves and the Black Pig Company while Calnan Bros butchers provided a barbecue.

St George’s flags lined High Street, Couching Street and Shirburn Street.

Joanna Bains, co-owner of the Cake Makers, organised the event with Robin Holmes-Smith, from the Granary Delicatessen.

She said: “There was a lovely atmosphere because the sun was out. High Street was bustling and I think the Morris men were a definite draw.”
