Country fair-goers still game despite wet weekend
SUFFOLK: Stately Glemham Hall provided the grand backdrop for this year’s Suffolk Game and Country Fair.
Visitors got a taste of country life and locals reaffirmed their love for the outdoors, despite an unsettled weekend of weather.
From wet dogs to muddy wellies, yesterday’s downpours simply added to the attraction for many.
The event, just off the A12 near Wickham Market, continues today and features rural displays that exemplify Suffolk’s pastoral charm.
The main arena has so far entertained fair-goers with flights by birds of prey and pony trials and gundog agility displays.
Anyone wanting to look the part could visit one of the myriad trade stalls selling the complete country get-up, from sturdy footwear to tweed caps.
Umbrella sales did a roaring trade yesterday as heavy showers threatened to turn the bank holiday into a washout.
