LARGE bustling crowds descended on Frampton for the village’s traditional country fair on Sunday.
The hugely popular event, which annually celebrates the Cotswold countryside and its rich heritage in all its resplendent green glory, once again attracted thousands of visitors of all ages.
Those in attendance were treated to a dazzling array of rural displays and entertainment, including a dressage demonstration from international rider Emily Richards and a horse acrobatic show.
Among the many attractions was a falconry display, dog agility demonstrations, lurcher and terrier racing, an inter-hunt relay, tent pegging, ferret racing and a hound parade.
One of the most popular exhibits was the Living Working Countryside, which showcased rural skills such as hedge-laying, dry stone walling, cider making and spinning, in addition to the skills of the blacksmith, farrier, and saddler.
There were also displays from the Cotswold Cart Horse Society and fly-casting sessions for keen fishermen, as well as Punch & Judy shows for youngsters.
The Renegades Parachute Display Team also impressed the crowds with a daredevil jump in aid of the Royal British Legion Poppy Appeal.
