REACH FAIR 2014

 

The Fair took place on the first May Bank Holiday which was Monday the 5th of May.

It started at midday with an opening ceremony on the Fair Green by the Mayor of Cambridge accompanied by the Aldermen in their full regalia and newly minted penny coins are scattered for the children.

The weather was superb and the attendance was excellent - enjoyed by all.

Pictures are below - if you have some of the day that you are proud of, please email them to me for inclusion.
