Winnersh trusted fate


           I have been looking with worry at my summer diary this year for all outdoor events. The weather has been so unkind to so many. It was therefore a double joy to be an official guest of the Winnersh fete last Saturday afternoon when we had some respite from the rain and even the occasional glimpse of sunshine.

            Many in the village did a great job to lay on a varied programme of events in the main ring, and to provide a series of challenges and retail therapy on the side shows. I was asked to judge the home made crowns competition for the children, which brought some imaginative head gear centre stage. I also presented a community award to Winnersh’s retiring Police Community Support Office. Nellie has been a popular and helpful point of contact for the village with the force.

           I would like to say “Thank you” to all involved. I discovered I need to work on my wellie throwing and on the skittles!
