Another successful Goose Fair, held this year on 16th June 2012. For the record, it was pretty wet and by chance, the Olympic Torch Relay was passing through Prudhoe at 2:00pm. Neither of these things detracted from the atmosphere the Goose Fair generates. It's a great community event.

Granville (a Canadian Goose) has settled in nicely with Richard who has signed appropriate adoption papers.

Granville was kindly referred to Ovingham Goose Fair by a member of the Hexham FreeCycle Group.
