Lions Fayre in Hellingly

HAILSHAM Lions Club is promising a day of fun and entertainment for all at Broad Farm, Hellingly, tomorrow, June 5.

The Mayor of Hailsham, Cllr Jeff Bentley-Astor will be starting off the proceedings at 11am for the third annual Game and Country Fayre, and will officially open the ‘arena’ with a few words.

The event offers a range of exciting activities for all the family, including arena event and fairground rides, and to keep people going, there will be a BBQ and ample refreshments available throughout the day. There will be in excess of 100 traditional stalls, including local crafts, specialist food and drink and an Italian food market.

Some £,9000 was raised at last year’s event for the Hailsham Pavilion, who are trying to raise £80,000 to enable them to ‘go digital’ and the Alzheimer’s Society. All proceeds from the Fayre this year will go to Macmillan Cancer Support, East Sussex Hearing Centre and the Starfish Project, which provides help and speech therapy support for people who stammer.

Sovereign FM will be broadcasting their road show from the Fayre all day.

Cllr Bentley-Astor said: “Broad Farm provides the perfect backdrop for this quintessential annual summer fete, so ably organised by Hailsham Lions’ Club and its partners. Organisers have really got something for everyone this year; great entertainment, incredible prizes to be won, food, games, and a huge range of stalls.

“As in previous years, proceeds from the Game & Country Fayre will be donated to worthwhile charities, so come along and enjoy a great day out while supporting a good cause!”

Entrance is £5 for adults, with free entry for children under 12.
