Over the past seven 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
As our Fayres grew even bigger, we used
two Explorer Groups:The Wingham Explorers
(Wingham Wizards Explorer Unit) and the Broadstairs Explorers ( Broadstairs Vikings Explorer Unit).
