A POPULAR fun day saw hundreds of Bramley villagers enjoy an afternoon of games, food and family-friendly activities.

Around 1,000 people flocked to Clift Meadow to enjoy the event last Saturday afternoon.

Peter Hayes, who helped to organise the fair, said they hope to continue running the event annually.

He said: “It can be hard for everyone in the village to get together sometimes, so an event like this is a great way for the whole community to meet up.”

The event featured a teddy bear’s picnic, enjoyed by around 160 children, a variety of stalls, a raffle, as well as a choir, disco, dog show and a tug-of-war contest.

There was also a bungee run and sumo suits, provided by Basingstoke Youth Service, and local teenager Louis Dixon ran a disco free of charge.

The highlight of the event was the popular Bramley’s Got Talent, which gave residents the opportunity to showcase a variety of skills.

The fair was organised by the Bramley village fun day committee – a group made up of representatives from Clift Meadow trust, Bramley Church of England Primary School and St James Church.

It is not yet known how much money has been raised, but any profit will go back into the village through these organisations.
