A 21st century Co-op came to the rescue when a Victorian fair ran out of burgers on Saturday.

The annual church fair held at the Grange in Wraysbury had a Victorian there this year with visitors and stallholders encouraged to dress up to celebrate the 200th birthday of the great Queen herself and Prince Albert.

But when 1st Wraysbury Guides ran out of burgers on their stall Victorian reserve was forgotten, as they went to the nearby village Co-op to stock up again.

It was not as incongruous as it sounds though - the first Co-op stores were actually run in the reign of Queen Victoria.

The fair raised almost £2,000 for St Andrew's Church in the village, while individual stallholders raised funds for their own chosen charities.

Glyn Larcombe, who owns the Grange which hosts the church's fair annually, said that his chimney sweep outfit went down particularly well.

"A lot of people wanted me to go to their wedding like that because it is good luck. We were lucky with the weather. although it did rain at 4.30 which encouraged everyone to pack up quicker.

"There were a lot of top hats about and lovely colourful bodices for the ladies."

The fair at the Grange is now in its 15th year and was opened by Ewan Larcombe - a long term parish councillor in Wraysbury and neighbouring Datchet - who since April has also been representing both villages of both on the borough.
