CAROUSELS, cakes and crowd pleasing performances packed St George's Square in Barbourne as the Summer Fair took place.

Under Saturday's sunny skies stalls were set up in the square for people to enjoy, acts took to the stage in the Barbourne's Got Talent competition and fierce chefs went head to head in the Bake Off competition.

The event, which takes place each year in the picturesque square, raises money for St George's Square, and this year organisers hope to raise about £2,500.

But despite the stalls brimming with tasty treats and gifts galore the highlight of the day for most is either the talent competition or the Great Barbourne Bake Off.

This year the judges of the talent competition were deciding between eight competitors.

Gareth Evans, aka Simon Cowell, organised the event.

He said: "We have a ballet dancer, a singer song writer and other singers. The judges, Sue Ashby and Kelly Thomas have a tough job."

Inside the church the cakes were being judged by teacher Becky Dolman and Reverend Jo Musson.

Fair organiser Elisabeth Witter said: "It's absolutely brilliant. We have so many helpful people this year."

Manning one of the church book stands was Joy Kyte, a lay assistant.

She added: "We are raising money for the church today. We need it to keep the church running, it costs a lot to keep it going."
