The rain stopped, the sun came out and lots of Mums, Dads and their children came to enjoy the fun and games of a Teddy Bears Picnic.
There was a competition for who could make the best crown and all the children danced along wearing them, led by Jazzy, Jancet Nurseries Mascot.
There were fairground rides for children to ride
Ducks were fished out
Dancers performed in the field.

What a fantastic afternoon it was, at Cheam Village Fair.
The weather may not have been boiling hot, but that didn’t really matter. The crowds came and everyone enjoyed themselves.
Thank you to Cheam and Sutton Rotary Club who organised the event, raise thousands of pounds for local charities. All todays profits will go to The Royal Marsden and Multiple Sclerosis Therapy Centre.
I am told a record number of volunteers helped out at the Fair this year. Thank you to every one of you. It would not have been the success it was with out you.
The Centre Arena is packed with displays, including The Black Eagles – acrobats that include a fire limbo sequence in their performance. That’s on top of a Children’s Corner, Beer Tent, 50 stalls, selling everything from honey to plants, and handbags to cakes, Radio Jackie Roadshow, Funfair, Punch and Judy, a balloon race, coconut shy and hoopla.
It was first started in 1977, and today it’s one of the largest annual local community events. It’s a fun day out for everyone, especially families. What’s more, with new attractions and more stalls than ever, the Fair has grown year on year – some 6500 people attended in 2016.
This morning Sutton and Cheam Rotary Clubs are hard at work, setting up the Cheam Village Fair.
It will be open from 12:00 – 16:00 and the very good news is…I can see a Ferris Wheel!!
