Visitors can explore a pets' corner, hobby horse racing and shopping at Sperrings Equestrian May Fair and open day, hosted by The Country Cabin, this weekend.  

A tombola, afternoon tea, take-home cakes and a barbecue will also be on offer at the event, which is raising money for two local charities on Saturday. 

Organised by mother and daughter team Sally and Bex Letts, the fair will celebrate the reopening of their coastal and interiors shop, The Country Cabin.

They will be raising funds in Sally’s father’s memory for Cancer Research and Bristol and Weston Oncology, following the family’s recent loss.

Bex said: “It’s been a bit of a year for everyone so far, and as the sun starts to shine and businesses being their slow recovery, we wanted to do something to spread some joy. We have plenty of outdoor space and want to share it with others and provide some light relief for a day of fun and relaxation all within Covid-secure government guidelines.

Sally and Bex say as the weather improves and outdoor events begin to resume this month, the event promises an opportunity to get out in the fresh air this weekend. The mother and daughter duo will also have extra Covid-secure measures in place to help keep people safe.
