Fayre can hit the jackpot
A HUMAN fruit machine will be the star attraction at the free Martinmas Fayre on Saturday.
The fayre takes place at St Martin’s Church Hall, in Eastcote Road, Ruislip, from 10.30am until 2.30pm and entry is free.
Among the fundraisers will be the human fruit machine which works on the same principle as a regular fruit machine, where a line of three matching fruit wins a prize.
In this case three people will draw one fruit at random from a box in front of them.
The fayre will be opened by Hillingdon councillors Catherine Dann and David Yarrow and if successful it may become a regular fixture. HILLINGDON Court Park in Uxbridge will be the venue for a new charity running event for children, launching on Saturday.
The events will take place on the first Saturday of the month at 9am from December 5 onwards. They will raise money for the Midlands-based charity Kids Run Free, which aims to create fun, sustainable running opportunities for under-16s.
Children will be encouraged to run as much as they want to with distances from 50m to 5km.
Races will begin at 9am on November 14, but participants should arrive at 8.45am for warm-up and registration.
Participation is free, but children who want to take part should be registered in advance at www.kidsrunfree. co.uk.
If you would like to volunteer to help run the event, contact Justin Mullis on justin@kidsrunfree. co.uk.
