ABOUT 1,000 people attended Hurley village fete.

Saturday’s event had a King Arthur and the knights of the round table theme and featured a fancy dress parade while 80-year-old villager David Hattersley dressed as Arthur.

Inflatable swords were presented as prizes to participants.

Other activities included a “human fruit machine”, pony rides, Punch and Judy and children’s games. The Rising Sun in Hurley ran the bar and there was music from Sandhurst community brass band.

A flower, produce, art and craft show was held in a barn. Classes included animals made from fruit and vegetables, a knitted item and a flower arrangement in an egg cup.

Show secretary Helen Phillips said: “We were very pleased with the support we had. Hurley has a great community spirit.” Her mother, Ginny Hayes, won the flower show challenge cup, her first prize in about 10 years of entering.

Money raised by the fete and the village show will be used to buy a space climbing net for the village playground, which is being refurbished.

Cindy Burrowes, who organised the fete with Sue Young and the help of about 100 volunteers, said: “I was very pleased with the turnout, particularly as rain was threatened.”
