Fayre's fayre

A quick note for everyone's diaries - The Hilly Fields Summer Fayre (NB: PDF link) will take place very soon, on Saturday 19th June, from 12 til 5pm. Anyone who hasn't attended this event before is strongly encouraged to do so, it really does showcase the best of Brockley's community spirit.

Just some of the attractions lined up include food stalls, plant stalls, bric a brac, book stalls, a children's farm, a coconut shy, salsa vida, a karate exhibition, a tug-of-war contest, a dog show, the birds of prey exhibition, a land train, a bouncy castle, children's rides, 'rodeo sheep', and - last but definitely not least - the wonderful tea tent, with delicious home-made cakes.

This year's competitions will include cake decorating (theme: 'bugs & mini-beasts'), vegetable modelling, photography (theme: 'wheels in the park') and art (theme: 'summer sundaes').

The event is organised by the hardworking folk of the Brockley Society, who often need volunteers. There may also be some stall spaces left, if any local entrepreneurs are interested.
