Families flocked to Potters Bar’s Darkes Fayre this year raising thousands for chosen charities.
Potters Bar United Reformed Church in Darkes Lane raised around £5k, of which 50 per cent will go to the Essex and Herts Air Ambulance, with the rest going to Katombora Village in Zambia and towards church funds.
One of the organisers, Tony Corfe, said: “The hall looked amazing once more with decorated stalls and the environment was showing signs of our theme ‘Up, Up and Away…’.
“The deputy mayor of Hertsmere, Brenda Batten, opened the fair with her usual kind words.
“More than 200 people attended and shared in the fun and contributed to the fund.”
