Groby Street Fair 2019


Jodie Kirby draws the winning Quiz entry

The Street Fair Quiz proved very popular with residents and thanks to the sponsorship from Groby Fish Bar and the all the businesses that sold copies, or provided the collection points for entries, it provided a useful extra source of income to help ensure the financial success of the Fair.  Although the questions were challenging 14 entrants managed to answer them all correctly.  In order to choose the lucky prizewinner a member of the Stamford's hospitality team drew one entry out from the wine cooler, in the absence of a suitable hat!

Thanks go to -

The Brexit- busting Street Fair!
At the opening of the 2019 Groby Street Fair Local MP Edward Argar reminded residents that although the news may seem to be all doom and gloom,  up and down the country life was improved by local community events such as the Street Fair.  He thanked the organisers and all the other volunteers whose
 hard work  who helped make the day a success .

And a success it was, with over 60 traders, caterers and charity/local organisation pitches booked.  Throw in some reggae, the Ratby Band, a guitar ensemble and a sprinkling of magic, and all the ingredients were there for an enjoyable day out with the family, and an opportunity to renew friendships.  Attendance was high from the time the gate opened and by the early afternoon Markfield Road and the Church lawn was buzzing with residents enjoying a break from the news, just as Edward Argar suggested.

If music be the food of love, play on

Don't go yet, Mark, there's a watercolour to paint...

Lucky there's been no rain to wet the grass

But If music isn't  the food of love,do you fancy something sweet or something spicy?

And something to go with it

Too late, better buy something to take home

Time to sit down and enjoy the music

The day has been magical...

...and seeing familiar faces from Groby's past was the icing on the cup cake
