May Fayre update for 2023
Braunston will not be holding a May Fayre in 2023.
With the extra bank holiday for the King's coronation on the second weekend in May, it has been decided to give the Fayre a rest this year and just have a village coronation celebration.
There was quite a debate over this decision, but it was influenced by a lack of volunteers and a feeling that there was a certain amount of fatigue amongst the stalwarts of the village who do volunteer to help each year. Like the ducks racing on the Gwash, the smooth running of the event conceals a great deal of frantic underwater paddling to ensure that everything runs like clockwork.
We will be drumming up support amongst villagers for getting involved in 2024, so hopefully we'll be back with a bang next year.
