Berrow May Fayre set to be held this Sunday

All the fun of the fair comes to Berrow this Sunday (2nd May) when the village holds its annual May Fayre.

Berrow's May Fayre will take place between 12.30pm and 5pm on the Red Road Playing Fields.

Co-organiser Lynn Smith told Burnham-On-Sea.com: "Last year's event was very well attended despite the rather cold and windy weather and the money raised from the Fayre exceeded £5,500."

"It would be brilliant if we could beat that amount this time. This year we have invited Richard House, the owner of Brean Leisure Park, to open the Fayre for us."

"We have lots going on including displays by the Heavens Gate Dog Team, our local Kung Fu group, the Lucy Gunter School of Dance and the Air Cadets Drill Squad."

"The 93 Bath Squadron Air Cadets Band will be performing twice during the day. We have over 35 stalls selling various products and traditional games to play. There will be classic cars and bikes and stationary engines."

"The Van Diemans Motor Cycle Club are attending and, for a small fee, will give you a ride around the fields. There will be a beer tent, tea tent, barbeque and various other food stalls."

The entrance fee for the event will be £1 for a family ticket and there will be free parking on the playing fields.

The Fayre is organised by the Berrow Community Association's Entertainment Team and all proceeds will go towards the Berrow Village Hall Project.

Berrow Community Association's Treasurer, Owen Davies, added: "2010 is special as it sees us starting work at last on the project. If all goes well it will be finished by Christmas with updated facilities and the opportunity to use the enlarged main hall either in its entirety for one event, or split into two separate areas enabling two smaller events to be hosted at the same time."

The Team's next big event is the 'Gig on the Green' which is being held on Berrow Village Green on Saturday, August 7th. Look out for more details nearer to the time.

Pictured at last year's event are members of the Moose Ladies’ circle at their gazebo (Sheila Fautley, Christine Pursey, Pat Fletcher, Valerie Wills, and Valerie Bowden) and, beneath, Ray Street, Terry Cornelius and Laurie Lillycrop at the whisky lottery stall
