A BERRY good Harvest Fayre, with true rural charm was a huge success at Rush Farm, Stockwood, on Saturday (September 20).

Local residents came along to the latest in an ongoing series of events at Rush Farm, and enjoyed some traditional, quintessentially English rural village fun.

Visitors of all ages enjoyed tractor rides, the Asum Gras Molly Dancers, blackberry and sloe picking, farm tours, apple pressing, a sheep dog herding display, bushcraft and a bouncy castle amongst other entertainment, as well as stalls and refreshments.

The event also included a return visit by air acrobat the Red Baron.

The Harvest Fayre was held to officially launch the next share offer from the Stockwood Community Benefit Society, which offers shares in the 200 acre Rush Farm available for sale to individuals and groups in the Worcestershire community, priced just £1 each, in order to keep the land owned by the local community.

The new share offer is to raise £800,000 to buy an additional 35 acres of land, also towards the build and development of an eco-education centre and investment in renewable energy sources.
