New vil­lage fair hailed a suc­cess

Macclesfield Express - - MACCLESFIELD PEOPLE -

HUN­DREDS of peo­ple joined in fun for all the fam­ily at Poyn­ton Vil­lage Fair.

The fair was the brain­child of Kerry Burgess, the owner of Cheshire Books, and is a new com­mer­cial ven­ture to pro­mote lo­cal ar­ti­sans.

Peppa Pig and the gang from the Dis­ney film Frozen were among the stars at the event at Poyn­ton Civic Hall.

There was a dis­play of rep­tiles, spi­ders and snakes.

Kerry said: “Hun­dreds of peo­ple came to the event and en­joyed sam­pling the cheese and view­ing the gifts, and fam­i­lies en­joyed look­ing at the rep­tiles, spi­ders and the snake and lots more.

“The pur­pose of the event is to show­case the com­mu­nity and re­mind peo­ple that lo­cal busi­nesses, crafters and or­gan­i­sa­tions are the heart­beat of our towns.”

Among those who at­tended was Mac­cles­field MP David Rut­ley and Mal­colm Adams, the Poyn­ton Town Coun­cil clerk.

Speak­ing at the event, Mr Rut­ley said: “I would like to thank Kerry and the other or­gan­is­ers for all their hard work in en­sur­ing this ex­cit­ing new ini­tia­tive is a suc­cess.

“A lot of peo­ple are keen to shop lo­cally when­ever pos­si­ble, so this has pro­vided them with the op­por­tu­nity to do so and for traders to meet new cus­tomers.

“I am very en­cour­aged by the num­ber of peo­ple who at­tended.”
