Cirencester Fleece Fayre returned earlier today celebrating the town and its rich history of the wool trade.

The event, hosted by Cirencester Town Council in partnership with Abbey 900, took place from 10am to 5pm in Market Place, Cirencester.

Bringing the community together, the event, now in its third year, included a Cotswold Sheep Society display, a Cirencester bee keepers display, as well as performances from Cirencester Creative Dance Academy.

Despite lots of interest, a competition to find a new Town Crier for Cirencester was cancelled after the council received 0 applicants.

Thanks to Paul Nicholls for these fantastic photos.
