ONE of the organisers of a special summer fayre held at a beautiful country estate between Oswestry and Llanfyllin has thanked all those who came to take part.

The Bryngwyn Estate held its annual summer fayre over the weekend – after a forced cancellation in 2020 because of Covid-19 – with visitors treated to beautiful gardens, food and drink and spectacular weather.

Lady Auriol Linlithgow, who organised the event and is owner of the estate, admitted she was delighted to be able to welcome people back to her home to enjoy the festivities, as well as raising money for charity too.

She said: "It went really well.

"The weather was fantastic and it was very, very hot.

"We were very lucky to get it as we had lot so people coming to the fayre – we had a fantastic day."

"There were not as many people as there has been in the five years we've been doing it – obviously we couldn't do last year – but certainly not as many as 2019.

"We only started doing the publicity for it at the start of June because of the confusion around what we would be able to do.

"And we were short of a few stalls because of Covid-19 but the garden tours went down brilliantly, with our head gardener Ruth O'Dwyer, who showed people around.

"We had some amazing refreshments on offer, including a hog roast which was brilliant and through this were able to raise hundreds of pounds for Macmillan nurses.

"We raised around £250 for the charity.

"I want to thank everyone who took to the time to come to the fayre, and we're going to do it again next year at the start of June.

"I want to welcome people to visit the gardens at the estate."
