A VILLAGE fair is set to return to Wraysbury next week.

Wraysbury Village Fair will take place on the Village Green on Saturday, June 11 from 1pm until 4pm.

After covid made it stop for the last two years, organiser Faye Bowerman said it’s always a “wonderful event and has been sorely missed”.

The fair will see more than 60 stalls of small local businesses and artisan makers for visitors to enjoy.

And there’ll be a classic car show on display for families to look at.

The event is always advertised in Wraysbury and Horton News magazine and this year it ran a competition for children to win a chance to have their design on the front of the June edition.

The lucky winner, Rex Robinson, created a design of the Wraysbury windmill, which is also displayed on a big poster in the village.

The theme this year is the Platinum Jubilee and all the bunting, flags and pictures of the Queen that are around the village will remain in place until the fair. 

Ms Bowerman said: “We are all so excited to see the village fair back on the calendar it has been sorely missed over the last couple of years and one of the loveliest things about it, is you see generations of families enjoying the fair together, many including grandparents and parents who enjoyed the fair themselves as children.

“The floods and the pandemic brought out the best in people in our village, we really looked out for each other, with all sorts of initiatives, and acts of kindness.  Events like the fair are what underpins that togetherness.”

She added when she looks at the village green on fair day filled with people it’s “impossible not to smile”.

She said: “It has evolved over the years as it should to survive, but at its' heart it is rooted in tradition and this year will be absolutely no exception.”
