The annual Treacle Fair was held at Saunders Field, Tadley, and organised by Loddon Valley Lions.
"This is a serious fair, with hundreds of stalls, and raising up to £10,000 for local causes. Congratulations to Peter Grayson - President of Loddon Valley Lions - and his team for running such a successful event."
"Last year, they gave £5000 to the Elizabeth Hall Cancer Care Trust and this year they plan to help St Michaels Hospice."
