Cuckoo Fayre on May Bank Holiday Monday 6th May

It’s May Day Bank Holiday weekend.

And that means the Cuckoo Fayre on Bank Holiday Monday 6th May.

Organised by the Independent State of Cuckfield, the Cuckoo Fayre on the Recreation Ground (Rec) in central Cuckfield offers a fun afternoon out for the whole family.

There will be stalls galore selling all sorts of goodies, refreshments and food including a fully licensed bar, burgers, hot dogs, Italian and Caribbean specialities, gourmet coffees and sweet treats.

Music fans can enjoy live music and don’t forget the Tug of War competition (entries are invited for teams of six), which is always a lively event. Bring some coins to spend at the charity stalls to help with much needed funds, and maybe have a chat about how you can help or volunteer.

My attention will be focussed on the dog show.

We have some new classes this year. The Perfect Paw shaker will be great fun, and I am expecting the musical sits competition to be hotly contested. There will be lots of classes to enter, and the cost of just £2 per dog per class hasn’t gone up for years.

We have lots of colourful rosettes up to 10th place in every class, and bags of prizes to be won.

I always enjoy the ingenuity for the fancy dress class entries. There is still time to plan your fancy dress outfits, so I hope that you will get crafty now. Remember to check with your best friend that they are comfy in their costume, of course.

Some of my favourite memories at the Cuckoo Fayre are of wonderful costumes including a jockey on his thoroughbred racehorse, complete with mini fence, the Keystone Cops, Little Bo Peep and her Sheep, and the cowardly Lion from the Wizard of Oz.

So if you have a canine companion who you believe is the most handsome boy, the loveliest lady, or the one with the waggiest tail, do come along. The classes start at 12.30, but you need to book in beforehand from 12.00pm.

And start practising those extra-fast and steady sits now!
