CROWDS turned out for all the fun of the Forest at this year's Fayre. The event at New Park in Brockenhurst was a celebration of all things New Forest - with the added attractions of miniature steam engines, tractors and other farm vehicles.

Organiser Joyce Harvey who has been running the event for five years said: "We have had a great time. There has been Morris dancing, ferret racing with the Wessex Ferret Club, belly dancing and the The New Forest Yokels always support us and play free of charge which is just fantastic - we are always looking for sponsorship."

There were also craft stalls and a motorbike display.

Numbers were thought to be stable - with around the same attending as last year.
