WELL over 1,000 people saw the best that Trowbridge has to offer for the town’s annual May Fair event on Saturday.

Families in and around the county town basked in the glorious sunshine for a day of live entertainment and all sorts of stalls in Fore Street, on top of the dog show show in Trowbridge Park.

The masses also enjoyed face painting, inflatables, games, rock and roll, zumba and much more on what proved to be a day to remember.

Mayor Deborah Halik said: “The whole town was alive and vibrant. I was so happy to see so many smiling faces enjoying a really brilliant day, that brought out the best of Trowbridge.

“There must have been more than 100 dogs all excitedly bouncing around in the park, much like the children who loved the inflatables.

“People also got to see artists’ work in the town hall and at Bridge House, just to provide a little extra on the day.

“Hopefully we have raised a good amount of money for my chosen charity of the year, Wiltshire Mind, too.

“This was my last big event as mayor of the town and it was a great one to end on, I was really pleased with it all.”

Trowbridge Lions member, Richard Culverhouse, said the day that they organised in Fore Street could not have gone any better.

“The stalls were great, the atmosphere was brilliant and the entertainment was the best we have had - it was almost perfect,” he said.

“We wanted the weather to be kind to us and it was just glorious. The live acts were fantastic, not only for their performances on stage but because they joined in with the other acts, such as the zumba.

“There was so much going on for it all. People were coming back and forth from Fore Street and the park and the crowds were huge.”
