Festival showcasing the best of village life

PULBOROUGH’S ‘popular’ harvest fair is celebrating its fifth birthday and organisers want you to join in today’s (Saturday) celebrations.

The village’s annual event is held along Lower Street and in the East Glebe field, and showcases traditional West Sussex rural life.

Harvest Fair chairman Rob Aylott said: “The fair has become a major event in the area and everyone looks forward to it.

“It’s our way of promoting everything Pulborough has to offer including its high quality local shops and local produce, its vibrant farming community, lively village life and beautiful countryside.”

New to the show this year are displays of agility and obedience by professional gun dog teams and demonstrations of historic weapons.

Organised by the Pulborough Community Partnership and local school and churches on offer will be a vintage fun fair, farm animals, sheep shearing and the Worthing motorcycle trails and display team.

The event is from 11am until 5pm and is free.
