Radlett Festival Village Fayre 2009 - A Miracle!

It seemed like our worst possible nightmare - after months of planning and preparation we were woken by thunderstorms and torrential rain on the morning of Sunday 7 June. The day of the annual Radlett Festival Village Fayre!

But, around 10 am a blue patch of sky appeared and the weather changed dramatically. It was dry. It was warm. It was even sunny for part of the day. And it lasted until after 6 pm by which time it was all over and everyone had packed up and gone. A miracle as many people commented!

Once again the Scarecrow competition was a highlight of the Fayre, along with the appearance of Elvis Shmelvis as an opening and closing act.

But the undoubted biggest hit of the day was the Jive Ponies who held the large crowd spellbound as they performed acrobatics on their ponies.

Our thanks to everyone who braved the early bad weather to help set up the stalls and all the people who turned out to the Fayre in the afternoon making it once again a huge success!
