Thurlow Fayre raises an impressive amount for good causes




The organisers of this year's ever popular Thurlow Fayre believe that the event has raised between £7,00 and £8,000 for local good causes.

The High Sheriff of Suffolk, and Thurlow resident, George Vestey, officially opened Sunday's packed programme of events at the village's recreation ground, all organised by a dedicated committee of 16 people.

Allan Loveday, the committee's treasurer, said: "With the brilliant weather we had, the turnout was as good as we have known it in the past.

"It's up there and matches any turnout we've had.

"I am pleased, and the committee is well pleased, with how the day went."
