Chairman’s Report

The Laura Fair Chairman’s Report to AGM 4/7/2022

I sincerely hope this is the last time I have to say: we did not hold an event this year due to COVID restrictions.

 

Once again, we have done our fundraising so that when we return next year, we have the funds to hold a fabulous event.

 

I would like to say a big thank you to the community which supports The Laura Fair during our fundraising. To the ladies who cook for the Trading Table, to the Quiz Night lovers who attend and businesses who support the Quiz Night with vouchers and goods and to all the tourism businesses who so generously give vouchers for our Facebook Auction. And to all those people who bid on the items and make it such a fun and very successful fundraiser. A big thank you to Anna who does the Facebook part of this. Also, to Kat for her background in tourism who is able to coerce friends into being so very generous. Thank you!

 

We intend holding more fundraising events over the coming months plus kickstart our search for sponsors as without their generous support The Laura Fair would not be able to offer such diverse activities over the whole weekend.

 

The shed is very close to being finished although it seems to have taken way longer than it should, but we are getting used to this state of affairs when we are told it is due to COVID the supply of goods and labour are scarce. A sign of the times.

 

A big thank you to the outgoing committee and in particular to those leaving us after many years of support. Amy Simons who started whilst very young as secretary, a role which she took on and changed the way we do things, then she took on the Promotions role and handled that with her ever efficient manner; a huge thank you. Hans Simons, who has managed the sometimes-challenging role of working with Stallholders and the spreadsheet which comes with this, and all the other tasks associated with Stallholders. To Peter Hay for being our Treasurer for many years, your efficient and easy manner was always appreciated.

 

I wish the incoming committee a successful year and I am sure the event will run again on the 1st and 2nd April 2023.
