There was fun for all the family at this year’s Rotary Spring Fair on Monday.

Crowds enjoyed a number of exciting new attractions, helping to raise around £10,000 for local causes. It all took place once again at Whitehall Rec and was organised by all three Rotary clubs in the town.

A big hit with the crowds were the Galloping Acrobatics, as well as a dedicated children’s play area, the fun fair rides and much, much more.

Karen Macadam was at the fair with her children Lily, 10, Eden, aged five, and Ellis, three.

“We’re having a great time and the weather has been good up until now,” said Karen.

“The children have really enjoyed it. The attractions seem really good this year.”

Younger visitors enjoyed face-painting, seeing the animals and playing the games.

Heather Green, chairperson of the Friends of St Cross, had a bottle tombola stall at the fair with other volunteers.

She said: “There has been a lot of interest in the stall 
and hopefully we will raise a lot of money.”

Mike Ward, of the Rotary Club of Rugby Saturday Breakfast, and part of the management team, said: “In spite of some awful weather we still succeeded in providing great entertainment and a good day out for everyone.

“We expect net proceeds to be in excess of £10,000 for the event which by any measure is fantastic for all those who will benefit in due course. We wish to sincerely thank all those who helped out and came along on the day for their tremendous support.”
