DELICIOUS home-made cakes, jams and cards were snapped up at the recent Wokingham May Fayre, thanks to members of the 1st Wokingham Girls’ Brigade.

The company, which is attached to Wokingham Baptist Church, organised a stall at the recent Wokingham May Fayre, held in the town centre and in Elms Field on May Day holiday Monday.As well as the chance to buy the tasty treats, the girls also organised a hook-a-duck contest. For the bargain price of 10p, visitors to the stall could snare a plastic bath duck and win sweets as a prize. Also taking part in the fayre, which was hit by heavy rain in the morning, were the St Sebastian’s Brass Band, just one of many bands to perform in Elms Field throughout the day.

The fayre is organised by Wokingham Lions and is believed to be the largest street fair in the south of England. It also gives many smaller charities a platform to raise funds through their own stalls.
