When early fund-raising efforts, organised by the members of the Parochial Church Council of St Margarets, were enjoyed by the general public, efforts were made to increasethe scope of the event.
Introduction of a Classic Vehicle rally, brain wave of Mr Tom Sale, saw the event begin to attract a wider audience from farther reaches.
Now a permanent fixture, along with the Tea Shop organised by the Wibberleys, other attractions have included Milner's Funfair, historical amateur dramatics, dog shows, and most recently a new Country Craft Village.
St Margaret's Church and Church Hall have great reason to be thankful for the Fayre.
The maintenance of our 13th Century Church building presents a financial challenge in such a small residential area, and the funds raised by the Fayre contribute to the preservation of this historically significant architecture.
Equally, our Church Hall offers a meeting place and community space that many communities lack. This space is vital to many, including local Brownies, parents groups, classes and workshops, and our Parish Council.
St Margaret's Church Fayre is indebted to Paul & Sandy Ford of Highfields Farm. From the very start in 1990, they have hosted the fayre on their land, providing a water and electricity supply too.
Over the years they have made huge personal efforts to accommodate weather-related changes and prepare the ground. We cannot thank them enough.
We would be delighted to welcome talented people to display their skills and sell their creations in our country craft village.
