Can you help with Ross on Wye May Fayre 12th May 2012

A new major community event for Ross on Wye is being planned and organised for Saturday 12th May this year. Organised by The Association of Ross Traders, the Ross on Wye May Fayre will be an annual all day event, with part of the town centre closed to traffic in order to host all manner of entertainment for young and old alike.

David Mc Gregor, A.R.T. Chairman and proprietor of Field Fayre, The Organic Store on Broad Street commented, ” We hope this community event will further enhance the towns reputation, attracting more new visitors  and have people talking about us far and wide.” David continued, ”We are very keen for everyone to get involved and help make this a great day. Even if you are not able to help beforehand, put the date in your diary and come in to town to support the local community.

We need entertainers of all sorts to get in touch to see how they can help. We invite schools, churches, local groups and organisations to get in contact to provide entertainment, help on the day or if they like have a stall.We would love amongst other things to see street theatre, cafes spilling out onto the street, great food stalls, craft and art exhibitions, a May Pole, Morris dancers, children’s activities, singers, musicians, choirs, bands, clowns, fools, majorettes, a hog roast, jugglers, bell ringers, medieval stocks,Punch and Judy, we are even hoping for a vintage car rally and possibly helicopter rides over Ross”

David concluded that we have still much to do with under 2 months to pull it all together. We are working with the Town and County Councils on street closures and financial support, but are also looking for other financial sponsors. If you can help or assist in any way to make this a great community event, please contact me by e-mail at ”
