Meavy Oak Fair - a Traditional Village Fair
Saturday 16th June is Meavy Oak Fair. This long running village fair will start at 2pm with a pageant from Meavy Primary School. After this there will be plenty to keep everyone occupied from traditional games such as hoopla, skittles, a coconut shy and splat the rat to a bouncy castle for the youngsters. For the energetically minded the Burrator horseshoe will start at 2:30pm. This 7 mile cross country run is hotly contested by some of the best runners in the area. While you wait for the runners to return you can enjoy a proper cream tea, browse the plants, produce and cake stalls or have a go at the water pistols. Dartmoor Border Morris will be dancing during the afternoon, there will be musical entertainment and for the young, we have a traditional Punch and Judy Show. Be sure to get your raffle tickets for the Grand Draw, we have some great prizes including a top prize of £100 cash. Don’t miss the Hog Roast for a succulent pork roll – if you do however the Barbeque will be serving delicious local sausages and burgers from local butchers Bidders, starting at 12:30pm throughout the afternoon and on into the evening. There is again a Family Dog show sponsored by Drake Vets and Ron’s Pets Supplies with classes ranging from Best Child Handler through to Waggiest Tail and Dog Most Like its Owner. Schedules will be available on the day, rosettes awarded for 1st – 3rd place so bring your dog along, there is sure to be a class for it! The dog show will be preceded by a Flyball demonstration and a Heelwork to Music display. All profits from the Fair is given back to organisations local to Meavy, last year we made a great profit of over £3200 – let’s see if we can beat that this year. There will be ample parking at both ends of the village, follow the parking signs from Meavy Lane at Yelverton end or for the other end you should approach Meavy via Dousland.
