Following the success of last year’s inaugural event, the Rawcliffe Parish Christmas Fayre is being staged again this weekend.
Taking place on Sunday, November 27, from 12 noon to 4pm, the Fayre aims to build on the “incredible” support it received last year when hundreds of people visited the event and is offering even more stalls, attractions, entertainment and food. The Fayre spreads along Riverside in Rawcliffe and has more than 40 stalls celebrating locally-produced crafts, gifts, produce, food, drinks and goods. Santa will once again be in his grotto and this free to all to attend and there will be a gift for every child. The fayre also helps to kick off the festive season in style with entertainment featuring the Mood Swngs, the local schools and Crazy Legs dance troupe.
Chairman of the Rawcliffe Parish Christmas Fayre, Ben Pindar, says: “We were absolutely blown away by the incredible level of support we received last year and the feedback was fantastic from stallholders and visitors alike. “Many of the stallholders will be returning but we’ve also added a range of new stalls and attractions to make sure there is something for everyone to enjoy. “The Fayre is put on by a small army of people from the community and it’s great to be able to showcase the wealth if of local talent, helo everyone find a perfect gift and, ultimately, bring the community together for some festive fun. “I’d like to thank everyone that helps to organise this, makes the event happen on the day and, most importantly, everyone that comes out to support the Fayre. They are what makes it a magical event.” Further updates as we approach the event are available from the Rawcliffe Parish Festival Facebook page.
