Community Fair

It's still in full swing up at the Buttermarket, but I went up earlier this morning and took a few photos.
Tim Pugh told me that they managed to squeeze 7 different groups into the Buttermarket - including Bryngwyn Riding for the Disabled, the Keith Leighton Fund, the Model Railway group, Fairtrade, HOWLS, and Hayfield Garden. Some are selling jumble or plants to raise money, and there's the inevitable tombola. I got a delightful round tin with a domed lid, printed with an antique map of the world for £1 - I don't know what I'm going to put in it yet, but it was just too lovely to leave on the stall.
The chap at the Model Railway stall - they've brought along a small section of track and an engine to run on it - asked me to mention that the exhibition is only open on Saturdays at the moment, from 11am to 3pm. There is a small admission charge - and it's well worth it!

The Town Council are there too, with their new newsletter. It usefully lists all the members of the council on the back, with contact details (and the Town Clerk), and it explains what the council's responsibilities are, and mentions the Facebook page at, and the website at They're hoping to make this a regular publication, along with a regular stall at the Thursday Market so that local people can meet councillors and discuss their concerns.
