Hundreds of exciting families and visitors enjoyed the sights and sounds of Spring Fair in Rugby yesterday (May 1).

Acrobats on horseback, fire jugglers and talented singers wowed the crowds as the weather held out for, most, of the day at Whitehall Recreation Ground.

It was a great turnout for the three Rotary clubs of Rugby who organise the event every year, with lots of money, and awareness, raised for their charitable causes.

Plenty of other charities and businesses in the town showcased their work too, and visitors were kept well fed with the variety of food on offer – from hotdogs to Thai curries.

Mayor Sally Bragg opened the fair along with Rotary Club district governor Peter Roberts and Rotary Club of Rugby president Brian Phillips, before performances from karate kids, guide dogs and more.
