An annual charity event for all the family will puff its way into the village of Potten End later this month.

The Dacorum Steam and Country Fayre has raised £75,000 for Northchurch-based Hospice of St Francis since it began in 2006.

Organised by the Dacorum Machinery and Steam Preservation group, it’s now back for its seventh year on Saturday and Sunday, July 27 and 28, between 10am and 5pm every day.

The hospice’s director of nursing Alison Allard will join Hemel Hempstead MP Mike Penning in officially opening the fayre at 2pm on the Saturday.

There will also be classic cars, military vehicles and motorbikes on display.

For youngsters, Thomas the Tank Engine will be paying a visit to the showground at Green Croft Farm, Potten End, and there will be an array of stalls including crafts, food and market produce.

Entry is £7 per adult, £4 per child or concession and £15 for a family. For more, visit
