Denham Village Fayre 2014
The annual Denham Village Fayre held in Village Road and is a Charter Fayre with its origins in the 15th century when a market was held in Cheapside (Lane). This year it will be on Bank Holiday Monday 26th May.
Nowadays, the Fayre is organised for the upkeep of St Mary’s Church and attracts people from far and wide.
Village Road is closed to traffic with stalls lining the road from the church through the village to the pubs, the pubs are open and Da Remos the Italian restaurant all serving food. There’ll be a brass band, Punch & Judy show, small fairground rides (for smaller children) and a sit on steam train giving rides on the village green. In the churchyard you’ll find a jazz band, beekeeper, woodturner, art exhibition and refreshments. In the village hall (the opposite end of the village) there are more refreshments, organ playing, fire engine for young children to clamber over. It is a lovely day out for all the family, dogs are welcome, though it can get a bit quashed at times. Round the side of the church you’ll hopefully find a vintage car display.
The weather was lovely last year so let’s hope that the sun will shine again this year. Enjoy a great family day out with fairground attractions, Punch & Judy, small train rides, music, children’s corner. Refreshments will be served in the village hall and church vestry.
Car parking is off Old Mill Road, near the Denham Roundabout, follow the yellow AA signs. There is disabled parking in the village hall car park but this is limited and must have a blue badge, alternatively park in the main car park and take a ride in the golf buggy that will put you at the beginning of the fayre.
