St Nicholas Fair


A highly-popular Clevedon Christmas fair is making a comeback this year after a team of volunteers committed themselves to organising the event.

St Nicholas Fair, which was put on every Decemer for 20 years, stopped running in 2008 after experiencing problems including rising insurance costs, a lack of manpower and poor weather conditions, which cause traders to put an end to the event.

A statement on a newly set up website dedicated to the fair’s return says: “A group of volunteers made up of local traders and professionals came together with the intent to produce a high profile event for all of the community to attend and to help build Hill Road’s identity again and have a great start to the winter shopping month.”

Organisers are still looking for any volunteers who can lend their services and are also aiming to raise £2,200 through donations to make sure the event gets up and running.

To donate and find out more information visit www.st-nicholas-fayre.tk or email Sam Harrison, event organiser, at info@discosandmagic.co.uk

St Nicholas Fair is expected to be held on December 3 and will feature live music, face-painting, carol singing, bell ringing, Victorian games and much more.

A new Facebook page, Hill Road Fayre, has also been set up to provide updates.
