For some time members of the three Rotary Clubs in Rugby have been planning for the Rotary Spring Fair which will take place on the Whitehall Recreation Ground on Bank Holiday Monday, May 1. This will be a great fun day out for all the family which we hope will raise £10,000 or more for the various charities which the three Rotary Clubs support. The event also provides a venue for many local charities to showcase their causes to increase their profile in the town and raise an equivalent amount between them!

We welcome back last year’s star attraction - the Galloping Acrobatics team which is sponsored by Come home to Houlton. Entertainment throughout the day will be provided by some of the young local talent supported by the Rugby Area Talent Trust which is one of The Mayor’s charities. A new act this year will be juggling with fire and performing some dare devil feats.
