Cheam Fair first started in 1977, and today it’s one of the largest annual local community events. It’s fun day out for everyone especially families. What’s more, with new attractions and more stalls than ever, the Fair has grown year on year – some 6000 people attended in past fair’s.
This year’s fair will take place on Bank Holiday Monday 25th May, in Cheam Recreation Ground. The organisers, Cheam Rotary Club, make a point of showcasing community groups like Cheam Gym Club, Fighting Fit Martial Arts, and Carshalton Cheerleaders who put on displays throughout the afternoon.
Over 50 local businesses and charities manned stalls at the Fair running competitions and tombola’s, or selling everything from honey to plants, and handbags to cakes. There was also a children’s funfair, traditional attractions including Punch and Judy, a balloon race, coconut shy and hoopla.
Although the main theme of Cheam Village Fair is fun, over £100,000 has been raised for charity over the years.
