St Christopher's Wild West Fair and Food Festival saw over 3,000 people this year! The Green Street Green Village Society stall was one of very few stalls with games - a Treasure Map and Splat the Rat, both of which proved very popular. It was altogether a successful day for all concerned.
There were several dance exhibitions, including line dancing. The music was a little overpowering but added atmosphere.
Although the majority of those attending the fair appeared to come from further afield, there were at least two Green Street Green residents who were unaware of the Village Society, so we still need to increase awareness, as villagers need to know the Society is there to raise local issues and ensure Green Street Green retains its unique close community environment.
It is a pity there was not more promotion of the fair. Perhaps some bunting along the road edge and posters advertising the event in advance would increase awareness.
Winner of the Treasure Hunt was Mrs Tina Bradshaw, a Green Street Green resident - unfortunately the photographs taken on presentation to her were corrupted on download, so they cannot be uploaded here - many apologies.
