Celebration fair fit for queen
by David Simister

RUFFORD residents are inviting you to join them for a celebration fit for a queen when they hold their village fair this weekend.

Members of the Rufford Village Society, which reformed last year after a ten year absence, said they were working hard to make the event this Saturday (April 28) a success, with all proceeds going towards the village's Diamond Jubilee commemorations later this summer.

Alex Garden, one of the event's organisers, said this week: “Rufford Village Society is holding the Spring Faat St Mary's Church Hall. There will be plenty of stalls including plants, jewellery, books, cakes, tombola, face painting for the children, raffle, bric-a-brac and many more.

”All proceeds will go towards the Rufford Village Society's Queen's Diamond Jubilee celebration for people over 60 on Tuesday 5th June. This will be held in Rufford Village Hall, Flash Lane 2-5pm and will include a buffet, entertainment and an exhibition of Coronation memorabilia. The event has been facilitated by an Older People's Champion Grant from West Lancs Borough Council.“

Tickets for the spring fair cost £3 and will include afternoon tea with homemade cakes and sandwiches. For more information about the fair call either 01704 821565 or 01704 821757.
