Choirs, morris dancers and a brass band will keep guests entertained at the Spring Fair on Saturday, May 11, from 1-4pm, as well as activities for youngsters, including badge-making, pond-dipping and face-painting.

There will be plenty for gardeners, too, including tips from local veg-growing guru Tim Foster. The entrance is at the allotments on Monk Road.

There will also be a raffle to raise funds towards building a cob roundhouse to provide shelter.

First prize is a three-night off-peak stay in a yurt on an organic farm for up to five people at The Yurt Farm, Ceredigion, Wales (www.theyurtfarm.co.uk) and second prize is two weekend tickets to the Sunrise Festival near Bath as well as goodies from the Better Food Company, Harvest, the Watershed Cinema, Tobacco Factory, Lush, Grape and Grind, Beast, Pearce’s Hardware,  Horfield Leisure Centre, Fizz Haircuts, Bliss and many others.

Raffle tickets can be bought in advance on Wednesdays, 10am-4pm, at the community garden or from Paul on 0117 942 8003.
