Fair Day

This Saturday, November 3rd

Traditionally held on the 14th November, the Fair of Athea was eagerly looked forward to by young and old alike. Since its revival a few years ago the dates had to be changed to fit in with the weekend but the spirit remains the same. This year will, we hope, be no exception  and Saturday will once again relive the days of old with all kinds of livestock and merchandise on offer. All we need now is a fine day.
