Staple Country Fayre



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 Crews'.

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.



Our Fayres are now even bigger, so we use

TWO Explorer Groups as our Ground Crew:



(Wingham Wizards Explorer Unit)





( Broadstairs Vikings Explorer Unit)
