Forecast is for fun at the May Fair

In 2012, for the first time in its history, the Redland May Fair had to be cancelled because of waterlogged conditions on Redland Green. The fair’s organisers are hoping for a sun-soaked rather than rain-sodden May Fair in 2013, and preparations are already well under way. Redland May Fair 2012

All of last year’s disappointed stallholders were offered a guaranteed pitch, and entertainers who missed out on performing for the crowds last year will be given a warm welcome at this year’s event.

The nominated charity also stays the same and a collection will be made for St Peter’s Hospice – Bristol’s only adult hospice caring for people with life-limiting illnesses.

The generosity of visitors to the 2011 May Fair can be seen in the children’s playground on Redland Green in the shape of a cone-shaped climbing frame. The cone-climber was bought using funds raised at the fair, and its installation was paid for by the Redland and Cotham Amenities Society.

If you can spare an hour or two to help on the day, or if you would like to get involved with organising the entertainment for the fair, then email mayfairinfo@rcas.org.uk and you can be a part of making it all happen.
