Sometimes good things come all at once. Get ready for Saturday 2 April!

The main event is a new twist on the Urban Park market – a Community Market. Devised by Fairfield Parish Council, it is all about getting to know who’s who and what’s on in Fairfield.

This will be a great opportunity for local businesses to showcase themselves and/or their products to the wider community. If you run a business and are a resident of Fairfield, please email hello@ to sign up for a stall completely free of charge. All you will have to do is take responsibility for setting up and clearing away your own stall before and after the event.

The Community Trust – which is responsible for all the community groups held at Fairfield Community Hall as well as many of the outdoor events in the ‘dates for your diary 2022’ article – will be there with information about what’s on offer from them, and how to go about setting up something new if there’s nothing that takes your fancy. You can also expect to see representatives from several of the groups themselves. The Fairfield WI, Fairfield Scouts and Fairfield Community Church are amongst those getting involved.

Residents who run community groups not linked to the Community Trust are also encouraged to set up stalls so that others can find out more about them. The Fairfield Neighbourhood Watch is one of those that has already committed to setting up a stall.

The Fairfield Parish Councillors will be in attendance, so it’s a good chance to say hello, put names to faces, and ask them any questions you might have. For further details about the community market, please contact Fairfield Parish Council on

Fairfield Bowls Club’s Signing On Day is just a stone’s throw away on the same afternoon, so why not pop in there too and see what they have to offer. And if you’re really wanting to make a day of it, Vivace choir’s concert will take you into the evening. It’s technically not in Fairfield, but there are Fairfield residents involved – what better excuse do you need?
