The Village Fair – a potted history and image gallery

There had been several incarnations of Ebberston village fair going back to 1970s (or maybe even earlier) when the fair was a few stalls and tombola, on the green where the millennium stone now sits or inside the village hall. When someone* suggested to make it a much larger affair and to hold an event at the Sportsfield, as far as I could ascertain from village hall meeting records, the fair in 2009 was probably the 25th one (but the first one at the Sportsfield). So every other January when the village hall committee meet and ask the familiar question, “Are we having a fair this year?” – all heads as usual turn in my direction … !
