Scope and content

Really heavy and persistent rains, the tail end of hurricane Charlie, caused the Donkey Derby on August Bank Holiday Monday 1986 to be postponed. However, the stall holders squeezed into the marquee determined not to let the weather make everything a wash-out. Lord and Lady Donoughmore from Bampton Manor presented the prizes for the fancy dress competition to Rebecca, Paul and Mark Dunsby.
