Summer Fayre

Ladies Tug O War



Event Information

Nomansland is a village with its origins in The Forest and whose residents hold it in their hearts still. So our village fayre is a traditional rural affair. The Green will be spruced up and the ponies banished, pet pooches will be washed and polished for the dog show and everybody has been busy baking cakes. Never mind the bulge, indulge in tea and cakes, fruity Pimms and our big barbeque. Mums and Dads, join a tug-o-war team; kids, don’t miss out on a ride on the death defying trolley run, and everyone will enjoy the arena shows. Not forgetting our thanks to Daisy the cow for again giving up her valuable grazing time to provide us with a pat for the splottery.

Enjoy all the fun of the fayre.

Our traditional Fayre is jointly run by the Nomansland Sports Association and the 4th Romsey Scout Group who operate locally, serving many of the surrounding Villages.
