Public Meeting held on Monday 18 January 2016
The well supported and popular Street Fair, Quiz Night and Open Gardens, raised more than £11,000 in support of the War Memorial Hall and Corner House in 2015.
The Street Fair has been staged every year since 1953, is a great community event and acts as a showcase for many activities, clubs and Charlbury societies.
None of these events organise themselves and we particularly need new blood and a bigger team in order to sustain Street Fair this year. We need volunteers who will act as team leaders covering the necessary areas of advance work in mounting the event, such as publicity seeking sponsorship, running the auction and Grand Draw, organising entertainment, and then on the day putting up (and taking down) the stalls.
There is much existing experience to draw on, so do not be shy in putting yourself forward to help.
Charlbury Street Fair Committee held a useful meeting on Monday 18th January. We were able to appoint new and returning people to the Street Fair 2016 committee. However, we still need to fill several important committee roles including Stalls Co-ordinator/team members and fundraisers. In April we shall also need to appoint a new Chairperson, as the current one will be standing down at the end of March.
If the committee roles are not for you but you would still like to help make Street Fair 2016 at least as successful as 2015, join our logistics, catering or marshalling teams. If you have been part of this small army in the past and are happy to carry on, or would like to volunteer, please get in touch (see email/post addresses below).
Committee meetings are held on the 3rd Monday each month at the Corner House at 8pm (20.00) finishing 9.30 (21.30). Please let us know via addresses below if you wish to attend or have any questions about Street Fair 2016.
We hope you will help keep Street Fair alive and kicking so that we can put on another grand show.
