Philippa and Martin Clunes reflect on Buckham Dog and Pony Show's fantastic fundraising day

We had a really fantastic day for our fourth Buckham Fair. The weather was warm and sunny and we had well over 7,500 visitors raising a record amount for the Dorset & Somerset Air Ambulance.
It was our biggest and most ambitious Fair to date; the Food Court was amazing. We had River Cottage and The Dorset Food Bus joining us, as well as many regulars including Riverside Restaurant, Wyld Meadow Lamb, Jalopy Pizza, the Dorset Coffee Company and Town Mill Bakery.
I dont think we have ever seen so many dogs in one place, and they were in all shapes and sizes; the display by the TV Stunt Dogs was loved by everyone. We will be thinking of new ways to entertain you and your dogs and ponies next year so please do join us again, make a date for 19 August 2012.
