A free family fun day is back this weekend with everything from a fair to live music.

On Saturday June 11, the Rotary Club of Buxton will be holding its annual Summer Fair and Charity Bazaar in the Pavilion Gardens Marquee.

The fair gives local charities and voluntary organisations an opportunity to raise public awareness of their work, recruit new members, and fundraise. Over 40 organisations are participating.

The fair opens at 10am and closes shortly after a Grand Draw, with winners being announced at around 3.30pm.

Entertainment in the marquee will be provided by a variety of musicians throughout the day, while a variety of food stalls will be outside serving tempting fayre.

Children’s rides will also be available.

Organiser Andrew Matthews said: “More schools than ever have entered the Children’s Handwriting Competition promoted by the Buxton Advertiser and it is open to all Buxton children of primary school age.

“W H Smith has again kindly agreed to donate prizes for each year group, from Year 1 to Year 6.”

All entries will be on display and prizes will be presented by the new High Peak Mayor, Councillor George Wharmby, at midday.

Matthew added: “Last year, crowds visited the fair in the Octagon to support the many voluntary and charity groups that do so much to help people in the High Peak.”

Buxton Rotarians hope for a similar turnout for this year’s Gardens marquee event. For more details, email Andrew at am4045@outlook.com.
