Portland Gooseberry Fayre comes of age on Saturday, July 26, and it will be opened at 11am by Sylvia Webster, who was instrumental in starting the event 18 years ago.
The Fayre Prince and Princess competitions and the baby show will follow the opening and all the fun of the fayre will include children's rides, a dog display, belly dancers and the chance to see a fire engine and talk to the firefighters.
Secretary Sue Coleman said: "We have more stalls than ever plus a raffle with good prizes and we are hoping that more people than ever will come along to celebrate Gooseberry Fayre's 18th birthday."The event is held each year at Bob Gooseberry's field in Weston Road. Call Ms Coleman on 861495
