Maxey Fayre fun for all

To the delight of the organisers – The Maxey Charity Club, Parish Council and village hall committee – and the many Maxey village residents and visitors, this year’s fayre was blessed with quite perfect weather and, for the first time and with the kind permission of MPC, held on the John Perkins Field, alongside Castle End Road, our super five-acre enclosed facility in the heart of Maxey.

A really heartfelt thanks is extended to the folk who worked so hard and helped the setting up, the ‘doing’ and the taking down after. It was a great afternoon of stalls, live music, beer and Pimms, cakes, hog roast, side stalls, fun dog show, medieval fighting and competitive games and opened by my colleague the Deputy Mayor of Peterborough Cllr Nazim Khan MBE. The much anticipated Nurdles Championship annual re-match was a highlight of the event. The current champion, Maxey’s John Hickling, demonstrated his skill and dominance at this ancient village game to retain his shield; presented by Dave Woollard, our game’s maker. 

A very special thanks to fellow committee members John Cant who MC’d the afternoon’s entertainment superbly and Lucille Hird for her energy and enthusiasm for the event yet again this year.  

Through the visitors’ generosity we raised a great sum for the village hall and charity and hope, all being well, to repeat this hugely enjoyable event next year.
