Sunday 2nd July is Gooseberry Pie Fair Day in Galmpton village. The origins of the fair date back to 1873 with its current street fair format revived in 1995. The traditional highlight of the fair is the huge gooseberry pie which is processed into the village and then served up with lashings of clotted cream! There is food and drink for all tastes as well as musical entertainment throughout the afternoon. The Galmpton Local History Group mount a display in the village hall. This year their display is celebrating over 1000 years of the landscape and history of the village. Their archive maps make for fascinating viewing. It was not long ago that huge swathes of the village were still just fields and orchards with just a few of the landmark houses dotted around. Events such as the Gooseberry Pie Fair contribute to the feeling of community by living in a village.
