ground crew

Staple Country

Fayre 2017



Over the past five years or so, Staple's Country & Craft Fayres have grown so large and complex that both the Fayre Committee and the 'non-committee', working together would still be unable to manage!


So we use a 'Ground Crew'.

These hard-working individuals carry out the majority of the physical hard work involved in the setting up and packing away of the Fayre; as well as acting as marshalls, traffic managers, gofers - - - in fact anything and everything that's needed.


We were extremely fortunate - because the

very first Ground Crew we used turned out

to be absolutely brilliant! It's no exaggeration

to say that without them, the Fayres simply

could not have been been staged.


The Crew in question are:

The Fayres now require even more help and so, for 2017, we will be using a second Ground Crew:


( Broadstairs Vikings Explorer Unit)
