FAMILY fun transferred seamlessly into evening entertainment as the first ever Didcot Summer Fayre provided something for everyone.

Visitors to the town's Edmonds Park saw a child's dream playground stretched out in front of them on Saturday, with go-karting, bubble football and a bouncy castle among the activities.

While kids exhausted themselves on the attractions, parents could relax with refreshments or even enjoy a massage or treatment from one of three wellbeing professionals.

The event sought to showcase the town's top talent, with Tae Kwon Do experts and Irish dancers among several local clubs performing throughout the day.

South Oxfordshire's charities and businesses were also out in force, offering everything from arts and crafts to advice on sustainable living.

Didcot's schools assembled and decorated carriages for a train parade, with an engine built by St Birinus School and Didcot Girls School.

Even the most energetic children had to tear themselves away from the activities by the evening as live music took centre stage, headlined by Oxfordshire band The Barnstormers.

The event was organised by Oxfordshire charity Play2Give on behalf of Didcot Town Council, with volunteers on site from 7am until 11pm to ensure the day ran smoothly.

Amanda Mann, a member of the organising committee, said: “It was an absolutely fabulous day and very well attended with a brilliant atmosphere.

“People said they didn’t want it to end and they’re looking forward to next year.”
