The people of Sawley are making preparations to put everything in order for the annual Sawley Country Fair on Sunday June 28.

People from all over the area are welcomed to the celebrations, which will begin at 1pm on the village green.

The annual event is held by the staff at Sawley Village Hall (SVH) to raise money for the maintenance costs of the community hall.

Vice President of SVH, Ted Flexman said: “The village hall is very important to Sawley, it is at the heart of the community and anyone who comes will have good fun.”

The entertainment for the day includes a falconry display and the opportunity to see other birds of prey up close.

The Thirsk and Ripon training band will be giving a musical performance and there will be activities for children including an ‘animal corner’ digger driving, a bouncy castle and games.

The fair will also feature craft stalls and displays of traditional country life including vintage tractors, groomed horses,farm equipment and Ripon Old Cars.

There is also a competition to win a cup dedicated to the memory of the late President of SVH, John C. Bostock, for the best country scarecrow.

An entry fee of £3 applies for adults and a barbecue and refreshments will be available.
