Raising the Glove 2017

Published: 29 June 2017

This year's ceremony to Raise the Glove by Lord of the Manor, Jim Rowe, was held as part of a wealth of events to contribute to the Cherry Fayre.  The ancient Axminster Fayre was revived in order to raise money for 'Light Up Axminster', the organisation committed to purchase Christmas Lights for the town.  This year there was also the welcome addition of a camera crew from the BBC programme, Escape to the Country, fronted by presenter Jules Hudson.
