March is getting ready for the St George’s Day Fayre

MARCH is gearing up for the annual St George’s Day Fayre, taking place on Sunday.

There is a fun-packed schedule of events planned, with organisers – including Fenland District Council and other community partners – hoping they will be gifted with good weather to bring in the crowds.

All Saints’ and Burrowmoor Primary Schools will be performing and groups, including Sarah’s Street Dance, will be showing off their talents to visitors, with showcases scheduled throughout the day.

A traditional street funfair will be open all day in Broad street, with all rides £1.00 per person.

There will be activities near the library, with a craft market organised by FenCraft Fairs, two Punch & Judy shows at 11am and 2.30pm, a magic show at 12.30pm and free balloon modelling. There will also be bouncy castles, face painting, circus skills workshops, storytelling and free climbing walls.

In St Peter’s Church Hall there will be a huge craft fair, while in the church there will be an organ concert from noon to 3.30pm. In the church grounds, there will be a petting zoo as well as stalls and displays.

Head to March Town Hall for a holistic fair and throughout the town, there will be a ‘dragon hunt’ organised by the Chamber of Commerce. The Museum will also be open and will have a farrier fitting horseshoes during the afternoon.

Peterborough Highland Band will be making an appearance, as will local singers Bondy, Tom Harlock and Aimee Peart-Webb. Plus 1st March Scout Group will be running a duck race from the Town Bridge.
