Fair for South Brent is a resounding success 15/11/2022

The Fair for South Brent focussed on issues of community, nature and climate, involving as many local groups and organisations as possible. It was a very successful event with lots of activities, advice and information.

Over 1,000 visitors thronged to the Fair for South Brent on 16th July, for the 50+ stalls, activities, great food and entertainment.  And from the many compliments received and calls to ‘please do it again next year’, people really had a great time.

SSB Chair Andy Harker says: ‘We are delighted that the main aims of the Fair were achieved. We came together as a community and had a lovely, fun-filled afternoon, whilst also thinking about changes we can all make to help nature and respond positively to climate change. Great conversations and discussions were ‘sparked’ across the Fair and lots of really useful information and advice shared in a range of areas, including nature, energy, waste, transport, food and community support.

We also raised around £2,500 to put into SSB’s fund which helps any local group with a good idea around sustainability. We couldn’t have achieved any of this without the support of many wonderful volunteers, far too many to mention by name, but all very much appreciated”.

The initiative of Sustainable South Brent, the Fair was staged in collaboration with South Brent Parish Council and other local community groups, organisations and businesses. It was made possible due to funding from various sources, including South Brent’s Community Energy Society, Parish Council, District and County Councillors, as well as Sustainable South Brent.
