The Rotary Fair continues the tradition of the HANDS Charities Fair, which has run every spring bank holiday from 1981 until recently.
This year, founder Maureen Payan and the Trustees of HANDS relinquished their careful management of the fair and handed it over to Rotary to continue and preserve this much-loved traditional event.
