Beyton’s June Fayre could be a life saver this year because it helped raise funds for a defibrillator for the village.

The defib will be housed in a disused phonebox on the village green, where the fayre wads held.

The fayre was opened on Saturday by Bury St edmunds MP Jo Churchill and, as it was the Queen’s birthday weekend many of the village competitions had a distinctly royal flavour.

There were adult and children’s classes to create a birthday cake fit for a Queen or queen of hearts tarts.

Adults could also enter a sketch of a corgi.

For the children there were show classes for a hat, bouquet and necklace for the Queen as well as to do drawings and limericks about her and even to create a crown from junk.

But as well as all that, there were all the usual stalls, games and races plus an auction of promises and a dog show

You could also see classic cars, morris dancers and farm animals.

But while the fayre finished at 5pm, villagers returned at 7.30pm for the Beyton Fan Fest Euro Football event to see the Euro match on a 5-metre screen with a bar.

Even the clearing up on Sunday was turned into a community event with a village picnic after the marquees were packed away until next year.
