May Fayre - Can you help?
For around 40 years, Upper Clatford and Anna Valley residents have been organising a May Fayre on the first bank holiday Monday in May. It’s a popular village event which attracts nearly 1000 visitors and generally raises over £4000. Running costs are kept to a minimum and all the profit is ploughed back into local community projects and societies.
A great deal of work and effort goes into organising such an event and we are always looking for volunteers and value their contribution – however large or small. Typically, we need help with the following:
- Collecting bric a brac and selling raffle tickets
- Erecting and taking down gazebos, stalls and a variety of tents
- Running the stalls and children’s events
Planning for the May Fayre normally starts just after Christmas so if you could spare just a small portion of your time to help, we would welcome your support.
