Fordingbridge Patronal Festival – Home and Country
Another amazing festival this year, as St Mary’s Church Fordingbridge was transported back to Home and Country 1915. The church was transformed complete with livestock as pigs, sheep, chickens and goldfish took up residence for the weekend! There was also a railway to enjoy, a dairy, exhibitions from all the local WI’s in their centenary year, a sweetshop, a fair trade stall and an art exhibition, as well as many stunning floral arrangements and a floral carpet celebrating 100 years of the WI. Outside the church there was a fantastic array of tractors and other farm vehicles to enjoy, as well as the company of two beautiful horses. As usual, this was all complemented by a wonderful selection of refreshments available in the church hall. A fabulous weekend enjoyed by many visitors from both near and far.
