The organiser of a country fair is hoping to introduce a Pimm’s tent and more food options next year after the success of this year’s event.

Whittlebury Country Fair took place on Saturday with dog shows and classic car parades entertaining the crowds.

But Faye Johnson, who helped organise the event for the first time this year, said she is already looking ahead to 2015 and would like to do some things differently.

She said: “Next year if we have a bit more help, we can improve a few things.

“I’d like to bring in a Pimm’s tent – I think every lady at the fair, in nice weather would enjoy a glass. And I’d put in more seating and look to have stalls cooking some alternative food to burgers and hot dogs.

“But the dog show was a massive success and so were the classic cars – some people travelled from two-and-a-half hours away.”

Money raised is still being counted by the Whittlebury Recreation Society but it will either help build a reading room or a play area for youngsters in the village.

The society thanked everyone from the village who supported the event.
