Thousands come together for Petersfield Community Fair

The celebrations continued on Sunday 3 July with the Petersfield Community Fair...

On Sunday 3 July, Churcher’s College hosted the Petersfield Community Fair as part of a special weekend marking their 300th birthday celebrations. The fair aimed to offer local charities, schools, clubs, societies and other groups in Petersfield and the surrounding area the opportunity to promote and raise awareness for all the fantastic work they undertake, whilst offering local businesses the chance to promote their wares.

With free entry and the sun shining, thousands of people visited Churcher’s during the day to join the fair. Local music and dance groups – including Italia Conti, Petersfield Academy of Dance, The Petersfield School, SOS From The Kids and Petersfield’s Queen tribute act, It’s a Kind of Tragic – got the chance to perform on a giant festival sized stage. There were over 40 local charities, community organisations and businesses taking part. Children’s entertainment included giant inflatable slides, carousel rides, face painting and crafts… And delicious food was available all day from a variety of street stalls...

The atmosphere was very friendly and relaxed with perfect weather conditions – the day was billed as 'Fun for all the Family' and there truly was something for everyone…!
