Chapel Row Fayre

Chapel Row Fayre is taking a break for 2015

2015 marks our 20th year of the Chapel Row Fayre. Despite raising over £7000 for our charities last year and having one of the most successful and enjoyable days, the Committee being reduced to just 3 members, Lynette Maja, Alex Buckley and Sue Glover, have had to make the difficult decision to take a break this year and to concentrate on making our 20th Fayre in 2016, the best Fayre yet!

We have already started work on bringing in new attractions, stalls and games and later on in the year, we would like to invite local supporters of the Fayre, friends and anyone who would be interested in being involved at any level to come along to an informal meeting to establish how much support we will have for 2016 to reach our goal. We not only require help on the day of the fayre itself but the days leading up to the Saturday and the clear up & dismantle the day after.

We are open to new ideas for fund-raising and would welcome business sponsors of the Sheep Racing, Barrels Of Real Ale and the raffle - each of which raise a large proportion of the final figure.

Rest assured the entry will still be FREE as will the parking. All are welcome from any County or indeed Country as we do have a good following from overseas! Entertainment is provided for all ages with our Children’s play area, split aged-ranged Fun Fair and side stalls and plenty of seating around the Tea Tent and Beer Tent for those that are happy to just sit back and relax.

Our thanks goes out to all those who supported us over the years including our Car Park 'Chief', David Tipton, our lovely Indra who has been running the Tea Tent for many years with her dedicated helpers. John Lafferty and the team who work tirelessly behind the scenes, before and after the Fayre building the Sheep Racing Course, setting up the marquees, arranging the electricity and manning hog roast to name but a few of the required duties. Our thanks also goes out to Willy Hartley-Russell for his continued generosity of the use of the Green at Chapel Row.

Announcements will go out in the local press and at various locations around the village with the date of our meeting, probably in October and we look forward to seeing some new faces bringing in new and fresh ideas.

Enjoy your Summer and add Saturday, 27th August, 2016 into your diaries now!!
