Residents and businesses are being asked to get involved in Sturmer village fayre, which is to be held for the first time in more than 20 years.

The event is to take place at Sturmer Hall after owner Daniel Hannan offered free use of its grounds.

In order to make the fayre a success organisers are keen to attract as many vendors as possible.

“Unlike years ago we are finding the modern world imposes some expensive constraints on proceedings – they need to take out Public Liability Insurance, must ask all vendors to do the same and they have to pay for First Aiders and toilets,” said Linda Bevan, one of the organisers.

“Despite this we have forged ahead with a start up grant from Greenfields Community Fund and a generous donation from local resident and businessman, Chistopher Gurteen.”

A fire engine and history exhibition will be on show, with dancers and singers providing entertainment, along with craft and charity stalls.

Proceeds from the fayre on September 18 will go towards good causes in the village and next year’s event. To get involved contact Linda on 01440 712038 or email lindabevan@hotmail.com.
