The Annual Loftus Community Wool Fayre was held in Loftus Town Hall and in Saint Leonard’s Churchyard on Saturday 17th June 2017: the hottest day of the year so far!
Over three hundred people attended this year;’s Wool Fayre, visiting stalls run by community groups and organisations, to hear the local “Touch of Brass” Brass Band and, to see traditional sheep shearing in Saint Leonard’s Churchyard!
Father Adam, Rector of Loftus said, “Not only has today’s Wool Fayre been the largest staged for many years, the glorious hot sunny weather has made this year’s Wool Fayre extra special. A big thank you to everyone who has helped to organise this event and to all those who supported what has been a real community endeavour.”
It is envisaged that the Wool Fayre will return again next June; until then, here are some of the best images from the excellent Wool Fayre of 2017…
