A group from the Plymtree Country Fayre and Horse Show visited the Exeter Group of Riding for the Disabled on 11 December to present a donation of £1400 and see the riders, with their helpers, in action. The event was covered by the Western Morning News and published on 21 December.
We received the following Christmas Card from the RDA.
Plymtree Fayre and Horse Show are delighted to have been able to support Plymtree School with a donation of £500 towards musical instruments to support the music lessons, school choir and the schools many talented musicians and singers.
Using the donated funds, the school has been able to purchase a keyboard, case and stand as well as a set of Boomwhackers and a Class percussion set.
We hope the children enjoy using their new instruments and, who knows, we may even have to ask them to come and play at next year’s fayre.
Plymtree Country Fayre and Horse Show
Report of the 2018 Show
After the success of the Fayre & Horse Show in
its new location in 2017 we hoped that this year’s event could be as memorable.
Thursday 16 August edition has a full page spread about the Plymtree Country Fayre and HorseShow
The Country Fayre and Horse Show in 2017 left many happy memories, but the events were memorable for four main reasons.
Firstly, the new site in the centre of the village, made available by the kind generosity of Herbert Persey, Tim Locke and Wendy Hussey. Despite our initial trepidations about how the new site would work, it turned out to be ideal and the slight bowl-shape enabled the Horse Show and the Fayre to appear as a single event rather than two events taking place in adjacent fields. This was helped greatly by Richard Batten who, with his usual understated generosity, turned up and quietly built a magnificent pedestrian bridge. It is a tribute to Richard’s skills that the bridge wasn’t troubled by the ambulance driver who was determined to take his vehicle across despite the warning signs!
