PICTURES: Mini festival gets Bures rocking in aid of Ferriers Barn day centre
Bures was rocking to the sound of music on Saturday afternoon.
Ferriers Barn day centre held its second annual mini-fest – a music festival and family fun day to raise money – at the weekend.
Around 300 people attended and helped to raise more than £3,000 for the centre, which specialises in arts, crafts and activities for people with disabilities.
Administrator Nikki Goodman said the team pulled out all the stops to put the mini-fest together, and to make it a success.
“It’s our main fundraiser for the year and we were so blessed with the weather,” she said.
“We have around 20 members who come to the centre on a regular basis, and a lot of them came along and had a whale of a time.
“Everyone worked so hard and we are so grateful to everyone for their help.”
Bands and singers included Gen Irving, Anna Bruce, Acoustic Monster, Beer Valley Drifters, Bijoux Toots and LaVendore Rogue.
Visitors enjoyed a barbecue and beer supplied by a nearby brewery.
Mrs Goodman said the event was given a helping hand from a farmer, who donated his field for parking.
“As it was so dry, he was a bit worried about the risk of fire, but it all worked out fine as it rained in the morning. It was perfect,” she added.
