Ferret racing and a dog show were among the attractions on offer at this year’s Cookham Village Fair.
The annual event, held at Cookham Moor, off Cookham High Street, on Saturday, saw about 1,000 visitors pass through over the course of the day.
Run by the 1st Cookham Scouts, with the help of about 50 volunteers, stalls were manned by a range of organisations, including Maidenhead Air Cadets, the RSPB, the Cookham Society and the Alexander Devine Children’s Hospice.
“Altogether it was pretty successful,” said Keith Le Page, chairman of the scout group.
“It’s one of our two major fundraisers of the year, as well as our fireworks display.
“Fortunately the weather was was kind to us.
“We had a good sum of money raised which will go towards what we need to continue to offer opportunities to our members.”
Paramedics were called to the scene of a medical emergency in Maidenhead on Monday morning (June 27).
