THE fourth Mawnan Country Fayre Day held at Carwinion fields on Saturday has been described as the best one yet with plenty to entertain the estimated 2,000 people who turned up.

The event was held this year to raise money for the "Children's Hospice South West" and was a huge success. The day was filled with events such as the dog show, a cookery demonstration, the hunting hounds and the fire brigade.

Vintage tractors, steam engines, vintage motor bikes and cars all made an appearance and added to the special day out that was enjoyed by all.

Show secretary Maxine Rickard said the show was the best attended so far.

"I think it was very successful and a beautiful day," she said. The amount raised for Children's Hospice South West will not be known until the end of the month.

The best in show at the dog show went to Miss Gladwell from Hayle with her Australian Shepherd, best puppy under-12 months went to Miss J Ough from Lostwithiel with her Cairn terrier, best veteran was won by Miss Eldred from Perranporth with her Shetland Sheepdog.

The first prize in the raffle of £100 was won by Mike and Jan Simpson who live locally.
