FAMILIES enjoyed the fun of the fair at this year’s Tadley Treacle Fair.

The annual event held at Saunders Field saw hundreds of residents attend to witness a whole host of different events.

Organised by the Loddon Valley Lions Club, the event featured a range of activities for all the family as well as arena events, stalls and charity give aways.

Visitors to the event could walk around the site and take in the fairground attractions, courtesy of and vintage and classic vehicles which were on display.

In the main arena there were displays from the Reading Scottish Pipe Band, Dance Phaze Conquest, K9 Dog Display team and a parade of vintage vehicles.

There were concerns as to whether this year’s event would still go-ahead following concerns of the proposed application of a Lidl supermarket on the site.

However, as previously reported in the Gazette, the application was only submitted to Basingstoke and Deane Borough Council last week.

Each year the Lions Club uses the Treacle Fair as an opportunity to raise money for a range of different good causes around Tadley and the surrounding area.

This year the event was raising funds for Tadley Citizens Advice, Seeability and Diabetes UK.
