Slideshow: Horam Fun Day

Hundreds braved one of the hottest days of the year to bask in the sunshine and browse the stalls at the Horam Fun Day on the village recreation ground on Sunday (July 14.)

Dogs stayed cool and enjoyed their outings in the ring for the fun dog show and a spot of sausage catching. Meanwhile village charities and groups ran stalls selling their wares, promoting their causes and talking to well-wishers.

There were main arena events too, including an exciting display of birds of prey. Proud owners of classic cars and military vehicles showed off their immaculate charges while local Scouts organised an ingenious lucky dip in a sandpit. Horam’s churches ran a popular drawing and colouring marquee and the have-a-go archery with formidable bows and arrows was a hit with children.

A car boot sale pulled in the punters where leopard-print baby buggies vied for attention with hard-backed books on climbing and walking, bric-a-brac and fine collectors’ artefacts.

A spokeswoman said charities and groups reported a successful fundraising day.
