A FAIR on Peppard common raised more than £4,000 for the village primary school and All Saints’ Church.

Attractions included traditional family games such as splat the rat and a coconut shy, inflatable slides and bouncy castles, donkeys and owls, a tombola and live craft displays.

There were queues for the bar, tea, cakes and candyfloss as well as a barbecue provided by the Ruchetta restaurant.

Peppard, Stoke Row, Checkendon and Badgemore primary schools played a tag rugby tournament. Stoke Row won the competition and were presented with a trophy by representatives of Henley Rugby Club and London Wasps.

There was also a children’s fancy dress competition with a theme of “princesses and princes”. A village fair committee spokeswoman said: “It was an outstanding success, helped in no small part by the lovely weather and the generous support of the sponsors.

“The organisers would like to extend their thanks to the whole community who worked from dawn to dusk making this a memorable event.”

Sponsors included A B Walker & Son funeral directors, the Ruchetta, Sonning Common Vauxhall, the Oratory Prep School, Lawrence Hamblin solicitors, Davis Tate estate agents and Johnson Matthey.

Other organisations represented at the fair included the FISH volunteer centre, Wyfold Group Riding for the Disabled and Highmoor Nursery School.
