A meeting was held in the Village hall in Jan 2022 and it was decided that we would run the Prawle Fair on the 4th June 2022, the weekend of The Queen's Platinum Jubilee celebrations (2-5th June).
As you know the aim of Prawle Fair is to provide funds towards the running costs of the Parish Community Hall and donations are given to some very select local charities and groups.
We would also like to thank everyone that has supported us in the past 2 years that we have not had a fair as even though the Hall has been largely closed for the past year or so, it still has significant overheads and running costs. You have helped us by donating your hard earned cash in 2021 and here is the link to show how you did.
East Prawle, Devon’s most southerly village The Village Green goes back in time hosting traditional fair rides, delicious refreshments, stalls and live music. At 2pm the fair kicks off with the traditional “Raising of the Glove” ceremony which according to legend signifies free trade and clemency during the fair. The Swingboats are always popular together with a Coconut Shie, Darts, Skittles and a Test your Strength machine! There are loads of other stalls to visit from Tombola to Whisky Galore!! For children there is a Fancy Dress competition at 2.15 and Maypole Dancing plus a Slippery Pole to tackle - sticky Candy Floss fingers may help you stay on longer! If you fancy chucking a wet sponge at our local District Councillor in the Stocks I’m sure he’ll be more than happy to cheer you on in return for a small donation. If you’re after a bargain the Bric a Brac stall may have something to tempt you or you can enter one of the fun competitions to see how your Knobbly Knees or ‘Andsome Ankles measure up to the opposition! .
We are looking for lots of children to get into Fancy Dress. There will be different age groups linked to entries and every child will receive £1 for entering! Please meet on the Green in your fancy dress at 2.15pm.
Each category will have prizes as follows:- 1st £10 2nd £5 3rd £3
