Biggest event in Great Witley for 20 years to raise awareness of sports areas
10:28am Monday 9th June 2014 in News
OVER a hundred stalls, fairground attractions and a farmers' market will be part of the biggest community event to take place in Great Witley in the last 20 years on Saturday.
Great Witley Country Fayre will be held across the centre of the village with the aim of raising awareness of the Quartergreen sports area and other sports and leisure facilities available to people in the village.
The Quartergreen is a multi-sports court provided for Great Witley and surrounding villages through a donation of land and fundraising about 20 years ago.
The fayre will also bring together and celebrate the vast range of crafts, skills and products that exist in the village and beyond.
Visitors will fill the school grounds, village hall, Quartergreen sports area and the open space at Bowen's Field to enjoy attractions which include a chance to win a pig in a bowling competition, bouncy castles for all ages, sports coaching and a dog show.
There will also be a health and wellbeing area with stalls from clubs, hobby groups and societies including the gardening group's plant stall, sweet goodies from Great Witley WI and a group from the Scout groups.
Jan Jays, member of the organising committee, said: “Great Witley welcomes everyone to take part in the Country Fayre.
"It’s much more than a typical village fete - more like a mini county show, with something for everyone from all of the rural communities around Great Witley.
"There’s so much to be proud of and to get involved with in our part of the world – please come along and have a great day with us.”

The fayre will take place from 11am until 6pm and entry is £1 adults and children free.
