RESIDENTS of Malpas enjoyed a ‘super’ weekend, as the hugely popular village fair returned.

This year’s fair had a superhero theme, with several costumed characters taking part in the traditional parade.

Visitors to the fair got the chance to view various exhibits in the central arena, including an exciting sword fighting display.

Also on offer was a wide variety of food and drink, as well as the classic fairground rides.

Jackie Clegg, one of the organisers, said: “The 2019 fair was a huge success. The theme of superheroes really attracted the school children into the parade which was brilliant.

“We had a wide selection of stalls and entertainment in the day followed by an evening concert featuring the Tone Junkies and the Brass Monkeys, all of which was well received by the village. There were many comments of this being the best fair yet.

“We are desperately seeking new volunteers for the 2020 fair to ensure it’s continued success and would ask anybody interested to contact me on 07834 811302, prior to the AGM which will take place early September.”
