Stretcher race returns to Beaconsfield on Monday
THOUSANDS are expected to cram into Beaconsfield Old Town on Monday for the town’s annual Country Fayre and stretcher race.
The latest addition to the programme are a jazz band called Phoenix, which is made up of doctors and surgeons who helped the victims of the Kings Cross fire in 1987.
Other attractions will include a classic car show, Harley Davidson bike parade, balloon race and trips up St Mary’s church tower.
But the main event will be the historic stretcher race at 2pm - with teams racing between Old Town pubs carrying a ‘casualty’. There is also a children’s stretcher race starting at 12 noon.
Since its launch the Fayre has regularly attracted more than 5,000 people, raising a total approaching £70,000 for local charities.
