THOUSANDS of people flocked to a two-day country fair this weekend to witness dare-devil stunts, falconry displays and aeronautical acrobatics.

Stotfold Mill’s Steam Fair and Country Show, now in its ninth year, raised roughly �25,000 for the restored watermill and also featured steam engines in shining working order, a farmers market and locally brewed beers.

Councillor John Saunders, chairman of the mill’s trustees, said: “It was a very good weekend the sun came out, the clouds went off, we were a little bit down on the gates maybe because we had three bank holidays in a row.

“I would like to thank all the people and the volunteers and the people of Stotfold who supported it.

“We’re going to have a special year next year and next month were going to start the plan, it’s going to be a very special one with a big ball like we used to do two or three years ago.”

Over 7,000 people visited the mill over Saturday and Sunday and it estimated �25,000 was made, which will pay for the up-keep of the award-winning mill for the coming year.
