Country Fair – Factoid Number 8!

St Ewe Country Fair – 21st August 2016

Factoid Number 8

Did you know?  

It rains a lot in Cornwall – sometimes in August

And boy did it rain in 1996. Despite the weather hardy souls succeeded in setting up the show. Now, we have had rain before but it has cleared up for the day – not in ’96.

In fact it got heavier and heavier and in torrential rain the decision was made to abandon the event and a soaked set of volunteers turned away those brave souls who had still made an attempt to attend.

This washout resulted in only £451 being raised, our lowest ever total.

Remember entry forms for the Horticultural Show and stall holder booking forms are available on line and in print by request. Contact as below.

14 weeks to this year’s fair!

The St Ewe Country Fair returns after a break in 2015 and to countdown there will be a new factoid posted each week leading up to the event.

Please put the date in your diary.
