Fairy copyAfter the Warlingham Fair opening ceremony at 11am on June 15 at Blanchman’s Farm Nature Reserve, all fairies are invited to a Best Dressed Fairy Competition with badges and gifts for everyone who enters and prizes for winners, sponsored by Warlingham Crafters’ & Producers’ Market. This will be judged by Catherine Southon, who will be helping Cllr Jeremy Pursehouse, Chairman of Tandridge District Council, to open the Fair.

All fairies – and, of course, any superheroes who can fly – are invited to join the parade from Redvers Road at 10.40am but must be accompanied by an adult. Alternatively, just be in the arena by 11am.

The Blanchman’s Farm Fairy Tree will be specially decorated for the day, so fairies might like to go and have their pictures taken with the tree after the judging.

The Fair is also running a competition to judge the best fairy gardens in containers, open to all age groups including adults. This will be judged at 2.30pm by Helen Foreman-Tapley, President of Warlingham & District Horticultural Society. Please bring your garden anytime before 2.00pm to the PA caravan to be issued a number and directed to a display area for the gardens. Prizes will again be awarded in age groups.
