Over 3500 visitors came amongst the sunshine to attend a very successful and busy day at the annual Brymore Country Fair and Open Day.
In the main ring, a programme of events enthralled the public and to rival any local agricultural show. The interactive display by Freddie Parker and the duck herding collies was excellent and with the main arena full of the students showing cattle and sheep in the stock judging it was a spectacle to behold. Archie Hill was crowned champion handler this year with Toby House second.
Around the site the one acre walled gardens were open to the public and the school sold its own plants, vegetables and apple juice, visitors were transported back to the Wild West with the History teacher, there were exploding experiments for all to try, opportunities for people to try archery and all of this was topped off with the agricultural village on the school farm with Mole Valley and many others supporting.
Chair of Sedgemoor Council, Ian Dyer, who visited was very impressed and said ‘what a great day for the local community and what a fantastic event for a small school to pull off, we are lucky to have Brymore in our area as are the boys that get to go to school here’.
