We’re looking forward to meeting you at our Share Fair on Saturday 8 September – any time from 9.30 to 2pm. This is a ‘moneyless market’ idea from the Eden Project – so there’s no need to pay for anything – apart from at the local shops, pub, takeaway and café of course!
We will have general waste, wood, electrical, metal and white goods skips (for domestic users only) and a metal collection for charity. Bring and take stalls will be available for anything too good for the skip, including books, clothes, toys, bikes, furniture and much more. We can’t, however, swap anything electrical or that might be unsafe (or illegal!).
Local allotmenters will be there for the abundance stall – so bring along any spare tree fruit, veg, flowers, plants etc – and have a chat about ‘grow your own’. We have lots of activities for people of all ages including an Eden Project-style teddy bear’s picnic, with outdoor games and some creative activities. There’ll also be cooking demos and various group stalls.
Bring along a drink and snack – or buy one from the café and shops – and spend some time getting to know people from your community. It will be very informal. Just drop by and see what’s occurring. We will be using the round benches as mini performance spaces – so bring your talent along too! Some activities will be weather permitting but we can also retreat under cover and move people into the Chapel and/or Church.
It has been a real pleasure working with City Council officers, local groups and organisations (too many to list) and, especially, individual volunteers to bring this together. If you’d like to get involved in any way this year (or next), contact Rebecca Jones, Sam Davies or Claire Adler, or just come along on the day and join in. It’s your community event!
