Fair-goers test their shooting skills at scouting fete

A beat the goalie competition proved popular as scouts and other fair-goers lined up to test their shooting skills at a scout group's summer fair in Maidenhead.

The activity was one of many enjoyed by hundreds of people at the Pinkneys Green Scout Group fair held at The Green in Pinkneys Road on Sunday.

Other games at the groups key fundraiser included a ping pong blower, lucky dip, catch the fish, and a coconut shy.

A variety of stalls selling everything from unwanted toys to plants and cakes were also run, along with a tombola, beer tent and barbecue.

But the highlight for many was the dog show where pooch owners had the chance to enter their beloved pets into different classes and win prizes.

Scout leader Simon Wheeler, who lives in the St Mark's area of Maidenhead, said the event was a big success and had an 'old-fashioned' fair feel to it.

He said the group hopes to raise more than £2,000 from the day and all the profits will go towards running the group and providing for group members.
