Maypole dancing and pig racing at Beckington village day

Beckington is a pretty village near Frome in the North East of Somerset. If you ever find yourself in the area it is well worth a visit and if you arrive on 'village day' so much the better...

This year's fete held on the 9th July was full of good things...maypole dancing, pig racing, Cheerleading, live music and a dog show all served up with a big helping of strawberries and cream, hot dogs, burgers, cupcakes and homemade lemonade.

The bouncy slide was very popular with the children and I can't have been the only 'grown up' who wanted a go!

Live music, stalls and a beer tent kept the adults amused all day and I think it safe to say that a great time was had by all even when torrential rain threatened to spoil the start.

Well done Beckington! Roll on next year - we'll be first in the car park!

    Thank you Sylvia such a lovely comment you made my day!
    I did have a copy of 'the Goops and how to be them' but it sold a couple of weeks ago before I had time to feature it on the blog, sorry.
    I've just followed you on GFC and look forward to reading all your posts.


I really appreciate your comment. Thank you!
