Challock Country Fair

Challock has been without a village Fair now for a number of years.

Because of this, The Friends of Challock Church discussed the possibility of sponsoring and arranging a Fair prior to the pandemic and had undertaken all the necessary planning to do so with the tremendous support from the villagers in 2021.

Unfortunately, the National Covid restrictions and general public opinion of large gatherings caused, first the postponement and, then the cancellation of the event.

With the lifting of these concerns, we are now delighted to confirm that our plan for a Challock Village Fair is back!

This has been made possible due to our arrangement with Challock Cricket Club who are allowing us to use the cricket field and its various facilities. The Parish Council have also approved the use of the Lees for parking on the day.

The event we hope, will bring together people from the village and the surrounding area for a family fun day in the traditional form of a country fair.

The day will include entertainment, fun stalls, refreshments etc in addition to an outdoor and indoor market in and around the village hall.

The new date for the fair will be 10th September 2022. Full details will be advertised in due course. We are very much relying on the support of volunteers from the village to help run the event and appeals for such will go out soon.

For more information the organising subcommittee, made up from a number of local people, are happy to help. This can be requested by responding to posts within the Forester and Challock Chatter or by telephoning myself on 01233 740165 or 07904 950704.
