The planning and organising of every Fayre is carried out by the Staple Country & Craft Fayre Committee.  But without masses of help from a dedicated group of ‘non-committee’ individuals, the Fayres would never get off the ground!


This small army of helpers has been made up of much the same group of

individuals for many years; although recently, we’ve added a few new members / lost a few members.  The 2022 crew are:


Rex, Georgie & Their Team:

Rex and Georgie are invaluable members of the ‘non-committee team’ - and every year they and their team provide manpower, parking facilities, pre-event publicity, equipment and a great deal more.


Val Bartlett, Mary Harrison and Janet Alwright:

Val and her team man the Crafts & Gifts Stall.  And for 29 years, Val was also in charge of fee-paying stalls and made sure that there was a wide and varied range of attractions on offer at the scores of craft stalls around the arena.


Jo Bennett, Billy Morgan, Nicky Phelan & Friends:

Jo, Billy, Nicky and co. man one of the Fayre’s most successful and profitable attractions: the barbecue.


Nick Coulson &  Friends:  Run the popular (and profitable!) Beer Tent.


Trevor Bartlett, Andy Ragett, Pat Heathfield & Team

Collectively, these are our ‘Refreshment Crew’ - and every year, their invaluable help ensures that The Refreshment Hall (an integral part of every Fayre); is one of the most successful and profitable elements of the Fayre.


Aiden McCollum: Helps with setting up the field / liaising with Broadstairs Explorers.


Dave Kirk:  Organises the P.A. facilities, and helps with marking out the field.
