MORE than 1,500 people flocked to the Bredon school country fair & festival of shooting.

The fair was held on bank holiday on Monday, May 5, in the grounds of Bredon School near Upton-upon-Severn.

There was mini tractor mania within the school's farm area, family fun on the bouncy castles and water walkers on the swimming pool, along with numerous have-a-go air rifle and clay shooting opportunities.

There was also a tented market place with over 20 local traders, an arena with displays of falconry, morris dancing, dog agility and search and rescue dogs.

The school's junior department held a bug hunt and there were equestrian activities and family river races.

Rosettes were awarded for the pre-school gymkhana, the fun dog show, terrier racing and tug of war, and a teddy bear's parachute contest rounded off the activities.

Co-event organiser, Mike Tweddell said: "After five months of planning, it was wonderful to see so many people enjoying everything that the country fair had to offer, all within the wonderful grounds of Bredon school.

"The success was thanks to the hard work of so many people and I would personally like to thank all the exhibitors, staff and pupils, and look forward welcoming back the crowds in 2015.”
