Bobservation No. 7

Banner for Bobservation 7 - Fulking Fair montage of 2014Fulking Fair and dog show has, since 2009, been held in Harry & Charmayne Diamond’s Downside Meadow, organised by the Social Committee, and has according to the Argus grown into ‘the best village fair in Sussex’. Indeed in 2014 we were awarded the Argus’ Best Community Event of the Year’. This year’s fair is being held on Sunday 26th July from Noon till 5pm.

The success we have earned has taken a great deal of hard work from many villagers and I think it fair to say that all those involved have a great sense of pride at what has been achieved. All profits from the fair go towards village needs such as tree work in the North Town Field, toys for the toddlers, carol books for the choir and roof work on the village hall.

To keep up the momentum we still need helpers for all sorts of jobs ranging from being involved with childrens’ games to rubbish collection during and after the fair, to serving cream teas or the barbeque etc. etc.

It is a great village fun day and I think it fair to say, although it is hard work, the helpers enjoy it as much as anyone.

In particular we need Tombola prizes such as bottles of wine, kids games & toys, biscuits, chocolates and any unused article that you would not mind winning if you had a ticket!

Please give me a shout on 271 or email me at if you would like to discuss joining in or/and donating a tombola prize. We can arrange collection.

Our next meeting to discuss the fair is in the Village Hall at 7.30pm on Wednesday 3rd June. You will be very welcome if you come along.
