HAPPY dogs, delighted dancers and hundreds of enthusiastic villagers enjoyed Horam’s most successful charity fun day ever. The day started with a car boot sale where more than 25 sellers did brisk business.

The doggy theme included a fun dog show laid on by the Eastbourne and District Canine Society plus a demonstration of canine obedience and intelligence displayed by Britain’s top gun dog handler, Andrew Farley. First Horam Scouts were responsible for setting up, organising and running many of the day’s events.

Children enjoyed hair-raising sky walkways, Morris dancers entertained and visitors tapped their feet to music from Hailsham’s Harmony Band.

Heathfield School of Dance put on a spectacular show while local traders manned stalls, sold cupcakes, organised a raffle and tombola.

Outgoing chairman Michael Bustard said: “2011 was the most successful Fun Day yet with record visitors, takings and superb weather. I am grateful to the Scouts, Horam Parish Council and County Windows who jointly sponsored the event and for all the performers and helpers who so generously gave their time.”

The day aims to foster a sense of community as well as raise money for needy oroganisations. Next year’s date, July 8.
