Bletchingley Village Fair Committee

The Bletchingley Village Fair Committee officers are as follows: chairman, Martin Booth; treasurer, Dave Goswell; secretary, Brenda Waudby.   Their contact details are below:

Martin: phone 01883 744283; email mrkbooth@hotmail.com

Dave: phone 01883 743782; email davidgoswell@talktalk.net

Brenda: phone 01883 744031; email brendawaudby@aol.com

The first aim of the Bletchingley Village Fair Committee is to raise funds to hold the fair itself.

We presently have three events per year starting with Race Night, where we raise money to cover the costs of the fair and the Old Folks Christmas Do (with any funds remaining after these two events being used for good causes around the village).

Next is the Fair itself, which is always held on the last Sunday in June (this year 26th June) on Grange Meadow, opposite the Plough P.H.   There we have commercial pitches (£25), charity pitches (£10), rides and games and professional performances in the central arena .    The Fair opens at 12.30 following the May Queen Parade through the village. The  Bletchingley Village Fair is having a facelift this year. We are having the ‘United Stoats of America’ playing as the main act. For the few of you that don’t know this band, they are a very popular foot stomping band extravaganza.  The atmosphere will be great. Prepare to dance!!. There will also be a beer tent, food, bonkers characters, great raffle prizes and family entertainment.
