Crowds flock to Street Fair

June 2014

Hundreds of residents and visitors crowded into Canal Street on Saturday June 14 for the highlight of the Jericho social calendar.

A great day out with music, stalls, children’s entertainment and lots of good food—the longest queues were for the Nepalese dumplings.

Thanks to everyone who helped out—and especially our unflappable organizer Charlotte Christie who managed to keep everything more or less under control. Chris Padmore lined up excellent music for both stages.

Local businesses generously donated prizes for the Grand Raffle, drawn by Father Jonathan. They were: Old Bookbinders, Branca, Brasserie Blanc, Daisies, Demijohn Oxford, Fair Trade Oxford, G & D Ice Cream, Illyria Pottery, Natural Bread Company, Oxford Pantry, Phoenix cinema, Posh Frocks, Rickety Press, and Walton Street Cycles.
