Last year, the Vicar of Kingsclere, the Rev Lucy Thirtle, put her head in the stocks in order to raise funds for the church. Sir George lobbed a gentle sponge in her direction, and this year the tables were turned.

Sir George agreed to go into the stocks, so long as the sponge was thrown by Lucy's one year old son William. He duly obliged. Before a long queue of people could build up to follow, Sir George removed himself and went on to more traditional activities such as the coconut shy and the ice cream stall. "This is always a happy and well run fete, they were blessed with good weather, and I am sure they will raise a useful sum of money."
