St Margarets Fair

St Margarets Fair

On a Spring evening in the late 70’s after the Queen’s Jubilee, over a drink at the Turks Head pub, a group of friends had the idea of creating an event on the nearby Moormead recreation ground which would provide a grand party for the local community and at the same time raise money for various charities.

Volunteers came forward to run a coconut shy and children’s games, stallholders were recruited and tents booked to house kegs of beer, tea and home made cakes. The day proved so successful that it became an annual event.
