Romsey Vegan Fair organised stalls for a range of businesses centred around a vegan lifestyle – including one selling vegan beard oil.

Held on Sunday, queues were seen outside the Guildhall, alongside a giant inflatable cow to promote the event.

In a post on the group’s Facebook page, a spokesman for Romsey Vegan Fair said: “Thank you so much to everyone who came and supported us, and to those who supported in so many different ways. Today went swimmingly well – far better than expected.

“It’s put us in a very positive place for the future.”
