  1. we are interested in clay pigeon shooting, can we book in advance? What is the cost?

  2. We were very disappointed in the Fayre, on arriving at 12.45 we passed a lot of people already leaving. This should have been a clue,after paying the £3.50 each entrance fee we were struggling to find anything of interest to look at.We left after 30 minutes as there was nowhere to sit ,unless you could leap into a recently vacated seat by the food tent. Not worth the £7.00 we spent to go in.

      We’re sorry you were disappointed – but if you only stayed 30 minutes perhaps you didn’t have time to see many of the other attractions, as the programme ran throughout the afternoon. I’m not sure you would have had a chance to see the Morris Men, or the bloodhound pack, the tug-o-war competitions, or heard more than a snippet of the Patcham Silver Band, or Punch and Judy show. Or try spinning or wood-turning on a pedal lathe, or make a wattle screen.

      You may have had a go at the clay pigeon shooting, new this year; which had actually started much earlier in the morning for local clubs – perhaps it was some of them you saw leaving as you arrived.

      St. Giles’ remote location poses a number of challenges, and we can learn from your comment on seating. However, in addition to the seats by the the tent there were plenty of seats you were welcome to use in St. Giles’, and take a hog-roast sandwich in there to eat if you had liked.

      You will see from the subsequent page on Shermanbury Fayre 2012 – review that there was a tremendous range of activities and events. Families picnicking on the grass, others of all ages enjoying the entertainment; so clearly many others found much to see at the Fayre.
