hi Alice, thanks for posting the link. Just wanted to clarify that this is only the "first village event" of the present series which I believe has run continuously since 1977. There were however many village events on the green prior to that though not necessarily annually. Those days of humiliation when we were made to do the Maypole!I remember one year (around 1955? - 1957?) when the whole green was taken up by a travelling circus, including a "big top" - anybody got photographs? - somebody must have.............

Do you think that was the circus which showed 'The Biggest Rat in the World'? Les Charlton told me about that - I wonder what on earth it was!
