Prime Minister Theresa May chances her luck at the Charvil Fete raffle

‘AND where do you live?’ 

Raffle ticket seller Victoria Willson was helping the Prime Minister fill out the details on the form, when Theresa May visited the Charvil Village Fete on Sunday, July 7. 

Taking place in East Park Farm Playing Fields, the annual extravaganza attracted hundreds of people for an afternoon of fun and games. 

Entertainment came from local rockers Piston Broke, an Aerial look alike from the Disney film The Little Mermaid, rugby sessions from the Rams and a penalty shoot out organised by Reading Football Club. 

But fashionista Theresa May – dressed in leopard print plimsolls and accompanied by her husband Philip – made a beeline first for the raffle, before visiting local candlemaker Naomi Cardy and buying some strawberries from the refreshment tent organised by parents of the Robert Piggott Junior School. 

And she was stopped by plenty of villagers wanting to have a selfie with her.

Now Mrs May faces a wait to find out if her ticket means that she’s won something from the raffle.
