The Buckland Monachorum Summer Fair this year was held in the village street. The weather was fantastic and set the tone for the day ahead.
The fair began as always with a Fancy Dress Parade. This year’s theme was Dartmoor Myths & Legends.
The parade started at 13:00 with the ringing of the bell at St Andrews church. The parade, led by the Plymouth City Pipe Band, made its way through the center of the village.
There were many stall holders selling thier wares, several game stalls to keep us entertained and the Segways, provided by UTC Aerospace proved to be great fun.
The soapbox derby was also very entertaining and the various carts, propelled their way down the hill to rounds of applause from onlookers. This event we hope to repeat next year.
The grand draw rounded up the fair and we would like to thank all those who provided prizes for this.
We would also like to thank all the volunteers who helped on the day, from the early morning through to the to the next day.
Thank you all.
