Trafalgar Day celebrations

Nearly 200 visitors attended the village market in the Keene Hall when the theme was Trafalgar Day. The Mayor and Mayoress attended and picked Thriftwood School as the best dressed stall. The hall was dressed overall in flags and bunting and every stall-holder responded to the Nelson theme with many of them dressed in period style. A beautiful floral decoration prepared by Mrs Bonnie Andrews and inspired by HMS Victory was on display in the hall and Jill Bellamy’s superb replica of Nelson’s column stood on the green overlooking the crossroads.
