Sir George opened the Hannington Country Fair and BBQ - an event held there every 2 years.
"Last year, they raised £13,000, a sensational figure for a village event. This year I hope they do every bit as well, despite the rather unpromising weather". Star attractions included the Hannington Silver Band, a medieval battle re-enactment, a roast spit, and in the arena some gun dogs, some archers and some ferrets".
"Many congratulations to Peter Walsh and his team on masterminding this very professional event which draws in crowds from all over the county".
