THREE thousand visitors braved the blustery weather to attend the Rotary St Asaph Country Fayre

The fair was held at Llanerch Park on Sunday, August 17 and featured attractions such as shire horse displays, performing animals, circus skills, alpacas, owls, reptiles, fairground rides, classic cars, tractors, a bbq, while toe-tapping music was provided by the Batala Bangor percussion band, The Beula Brass and the popular ukulele group, The fallen Arches.

The Anglesey Hussars delighted children and adults with their display as they created the “magic of the Napoleonic times” with their use of cannon, horse, lance and sword.

Towering above the site was a 25-foot climbing tower and lifelike models, of the Rhyl model aircraft club, buzzed overhead.

The hounds of the Flint and Denbigh Hunt made a first time appearance whilst superheroes Batman, Robin and Superwoman entertained children in the Rotary welcome tent. The day also featured a 100 stalls.

David Knights, Rotarian and fayre co-ordinator, said: “We are surprised and delighted that so many people have come from far and wide to support us today. Last year the fayre raised more than £5,000 for the good causes we support and we are hoping to match that sum this year.

“I am grateful to everybody who has worked so hard to establish our fayre as an unmissable event in the North Wales calendar.”
