Dr Dan enjoys a visit to the annual Mendlesham May Fayre

This year, Mendlesham's Annual May Fayre fell on May Day itself and Dr Dan was delighted to visit once more to witness the traditional procession of the May Queen, Princess and their attendants, before taking time to visit the many stands and stall holders who were there to enjoy the bumper Street Fayre.

Dr Dan was delighted to show his support for the Mendlesham Street Fair, which attracted a large number of local residents who came to see an array of craft, gift and game stalls, along with the traditional procession through the historic village.The event was organised by Mendlesham Community Council and saw many village shops and the village pubs open up all day to welcome residents.  Amongst the stands, Dr Dan was delighted to support a number of worthy causes including Mendlesham United Football Club, St Elizabeth Hospice and the Women's Institute (WI).

At the end of a very busy afternoon, Dr Dan was able to enjoy a visit to Mendlesham's only pub, The King's Head.
