Celebrity Favourite Print chosen by Sam Fraser (weather presenter on South Today) 

This year the fete was opened by Sam Fraser, a radio personality and a weather presenter on South Today.

Sam was invited to select her favourite photograph. It was a difficult choice and she finally decided on a graphic story telling image. It was taken by Alan Cooke at the Tate Modern and was entitled 'And frightened Miss Muffet Away'. It featured a small child framed between the legs of a giant sculpture of a spider. Alan received a bottle of Beaulieu Bubbly which was presented by Lord Montague.
