THE community of Pulborough came together on Saturday, September 26 for a Harvest Fair.

The Pulborough Harvest Fair is renowned across Sussex, and this year saw a record attendance as visitors made the most of the late September sun.

Malcolm Gray, chairman of the Harvest Fair Committee, said, “The Pulborough Community Partnership created the traditional village fair as a way to bring together the local community.

“We’ve been going for nearly a decade and the fair goes from strength to strength getting bigger and better every single year, with people coming to visit us from further afield.

“We had record attendance and the feedback has been incredible.”

Entertainment for the day included the Billingshurst Dog Agility, with Arun Vets mascot Victor stealing the show with his round; new talent with a set from local singer Konnar; Huxley’s Birds of Prey and Award winning kid’s entertainer Tom Foolery.
