One of the most ambitious of the village fairs in the whole of Hampshire is the Hannington Country Fair - held every two years.
"The scale is different from nearly every other village fair, with a very active programme in the ring on the green comprising birds of prey, ferret racing, a parade of hounds, a demonstration of fly tying, and the Kintbury Gundog Club."
"Then there is a craft fair, the Hannington Silver Band, mini-Rugby, a spit-roasted lamb, a vintage vehicle display and a bucking Bronco ride. For a small village to lay on all of this is a great achievement. Well done Antony Littleton and his team".

The Fair raised £10,000.
