Scope and content

The SPAJERS (Society for the Preservation of Ancient Junketing) organise a Donkey Derby in Sandfords Field on August Bank Holiday Monday each year. It is one of their main fundraising events which enable them to take two coaches of senior citizens to the seaside for the day two days on from the Donkey Derby and a give every pensioner a Christmas card with £20 or £25 inside. They have also given help in times of trouble and stress to people in need such as after the dreadful floods in Bampton in 2007. This day, August 28th 2017 was the hottest August Bank Holiday on record in the SE of England and it got to 27oC in Bampton. People revelled in the sunshine and great crowds came out to enjoy the day.
