Country Fair – Factoid Number 5!

St Ewe Country Fair – 21st August 2016

Factoid Number 5

Did you know?  

2012, The year of the Wasp

An unusual job for the fair organizers is scouring the hedgerows around the show field to ensure we are clear of wasp nests and they don’t usually present a real problem.

However, in 2012 the black and yellow perils were out in force. Rumour has it they travelled from all over Cornwall to sample our famous cream teas and judge the horticultural exhibits. Sue, our first aider was kept busy treating a few visitors who had close encounters of the stripy kind. A group of wozzers were last seen heading back to Bugle with 2 ham sandwiches, a jam scone and a pint of Betty Stoggs.

17 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.
