Thousands attend Oaklands College Fayre in St Albans
THOUSANDS of people visited a popular summer fayre on Sunday which raised hundreds of pounds for good causes.
Around 5,000 visitors are thought to have gone along to the Oaklands College annual summer fayre where the highlights included a fashion show by art, fashion and design students, dog agility and cattle shows and tank rides.
Marquees set up on the lawns of the campus held stalls selling jewellery, cakes, toys, honey and cards while a fun fair and tractor rides also proved popular. Falconry and animal displays were another draw as well as stilt walkers and sporting games.
Students and staff at the college were very involved in the day’s activities, which was sponsored by Debenhams Ottaway, and many of them were raising money for charities at the same time.
College principal and chief executive Mark Dawe said: “Our summer fayre proved popular again, offering entertainment and a fun day out for all the family.
