NOW in its seventh year, the Wessex Country Fair returns to the Wilton Estate to raise vital funds for Salisbury Hospice.

This year crowds will be treated to main arena acts including KH Falconry, Serve On Search rescue dogs, Gun Dogs skills and tricks and the return of the hugely popular camels.

There will also be displays of vintage cars and fire engines as well as tractor and agricultural displays.

The fun dog show returns and for the children there will be donkey rides, archery and a bouncy castle.

With the addition of live music and numerous stalls, there will be something for the whole family to enjoy.

Salisbury Hospice has thanked the Earl and Countess of Pembroke for allowing the event to take place on their estate and for their continued support.

The fair is one of the main fundraising events of the year for Salisbury Hospice Charity.

Money raised goes towards the provision of expert nursing care and support to people living with life-limiting illnesses.

Each year the charity supports 1,000 patients, families and carers, with all its services free of charge to those who need them.

It costs £2.4 million each year to run the hospice – that is £6,575 a day, £274 per hour, and £4.56 every minute.

The event takes place tomorrow (Sunday, August 4) from 10am to 5pm.

Tickets are available on the gate. To find out more go to
