Redland May Fair is hot stuff!

In a break with tradition, this year’s Redland May Fair took place on the hottest early May Bank Holiday on record!

We had a lovely afternoon on Redland Green and the bucket collection came to £1,347.10 which will have Gift Aid added to it and be given to our nominated charity Freewheelers EVS.  Thank you to fair-goers for giving so generously.

The Redland May Fair is a community event that has been running for 42 years. It is organised by a small team of volunteers on behalf of the Redland and Cotham Amenities Society on a cost neutral basis.

We have been seeking new committee members for a few years to replace long standing members but unfortunately this has not worked out. Most of us have served for 10 years or more. For various genuine and personal reasons, the Redland May Fair Committee has decided to step down.

A new team is needed to take up the challenge, with some fresh ideas and perhaps a whole new approach to the staging of the event for 2019. We are willing to share our experience and contacts with this new team if required.

If you know of a group who might be willing to take up the challenge and continue the tradition of a community event on Redland Green then please contact RCAS by email on info@rcas.org.uk 

We are very grateful to all those who have supported us over the years. The event has worked closely with Redland Church, the Tennis and Bowls clubs and with a number of schools and other organisations to make the day go smoothly.  

A lot of money has been raised for charities and schools over many years.  The event provides a great opportunity for people to stay in contact with local friends and neighbours. We are proud of what we have achieved and gained much pleasure and friendship along the way. We would really like to see the tradition of a May Fair on Redland Green continue.
