Sun 06 August 2017 Herefordshire Country Fair.

We have been invited to display some FOFH members tractors and implements at the County Fair , please contact Andrew for an application if you wish to bring a tractor, there is only limited space available so its first come first serve.
The Herefordshire Country Fair is being held in conjunction with the Word War 1 Commemoration Committee.
This historic day will be a major civic event. Alongside all the core traditional features of the Fair there will be educational displays, both in marquees, on the showground itself and in the main ring; where the commitment, hard work and sacrifices made by the civilian population during the war years, and how this contributed to the eventual victory, will be reflected. 1917 was a pivotal time - true hardship had set in and the results of conscription, rationing and shortages called for extraordinary efforts to be made by the whole population.
Three rings of non-stop all-day entertainment
The Fair is now in its 39th year and promises a great family day out. This year we have the usual country fair favourites: terrier racing, working gun dogs, inter hunt relay, scurry racing, clay pigeon shooting, fly fishing and a parade of foxhounds. With over a 100 trade stands, the shopping and craft marquee and the fabulous food hall, the fair offers a great shopping experience. We look forward to welcoming you.
