CHAIRMAN'S WELCOME

Good afternoon and a very warm welcome to the 34th Bradfield Mayfayre. Please relax and enjoy yourselves in the good old fashioned British way.  Our 'Art in Action', a well-established Mayfayre favourite, is back with exciting demonstrations and displays by local craftspeople in our newly created Art & Craft tent.  Please take time to come along and see their work. In the Beer tent, Bradfield Social Club will be working hard to satisfy your thirsts, having set a new record last year!

Firstly, I must thank all the Mayfayre Committee, a dedicated team of individuals, who once again have come up with an exciting event with something for everyone.  A lot of time and thought goes into each Mayfayre but without your generosity and loyalty our task, providing vital funds to our needy community projects, charities and voluntary organisations, would be much harder. There is a summary of last year's disbursements on the following page, which totalled approx. £13,080.

A very special mention and thanks must go to our Mayfayre 2015 Community Partners: Bradfield Enterprises & College, Bradfield Social Club, Bramley Bakery, Parkers Estate Agents, Performing Rights Society and SITA UK, who are all extremely generous in helping us meet our objectives.

Thanks also to all our loyal and new advertisers in the 2015 programme. We are very grateful and lucky to have such wonderful supporters so we can continue to plan and provide a real "Value for Money" event.

Here's hoping the sun shines on us again and we all enjoy a fantastic afternoon and catch up with friends and neighbours. If anybody would like to join the Mayfayre helpers please speak to any of the 'yellow shirt' brigade. Save the date of Mayfayre 2016 which is 2nd May. Put the date in your diary now!  Please enjoy and have a great afternoon! 

Jim Balsdon, MBE, Chairman
