Background Information

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.  If you are able to offer any help with collecting, running a stall or with the set up and clear up, we’re always keen to welcome new volunteers. 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
