THE virtual Wessex Country Fair in support of Salisbury Hospice Charity is taking place this weekend.

Due to covid-19, the charity will be hosting an array of online virtual fundraising games, competitions, demonstration and talks on Saturday, August 29 and Sunday 30.

Activities include a virtual shopping village, paint a pebble competition, virtual dog show and demonstrations as well as a chance to meet the hospice team.

The charity is also encouraging supporters to have their own “garden get-togethers” - adhering to government guidelines.
