It’s bigger and better than ever and organisers are hoping for a fabulous day of sun and fun.
The Bring Life to Little Sutton campaign group was created to bring life back to the village shopping centre which it is said has seen better days.
The campaign argues the thriving shops of yesteryear have been replaced by empty premises, estate agents, restaurants and takeaways.
Now, after the great success of last year’s summer fair, organised by Julie and Lily Betts Vintage Tea Room proprietor Danielle Slater, the group is running another said to be ‘even bigger and better’.
What's on offer?
People will find it has grown massively with 40 stalls on offer, food, the Deevine Morris Dancers, the SingMe Merseyside choir, a dog show and activities for children including a petting zoo and a bouncy castle.
There will everything from computer tips to crafts and fabulous ice cream made just down the road along with a designated health and wellbeing area with mini massages, healthy vegetarian food and aloe products.
It will all be happening at Little Sutton Community Centre, home to the now popular weekly pop-up market, and field on Saturday (June 25) from 1pm to 5pm with the festival continuing with a bar, BBQ and live music from some great local bands ‘till late’.
Ellesmere Port mayor Peter Rooney will be on hand and proceeds will be donated to little Olivia May Phillips who is battling hepatoblastoma.
Something for everyone
Local people are asked to walk to the fair if possible as the car park does get gridlocked although parking will also be available at the Red Lion pub thanks to Jackie Fadden the owner.
“There really is something for everyone,” promise organisers.
The Bring Life to Little Sutton campaign was started by Julie Perry on Facebook social media. Julie conducted a survey asking residents what they would like to see in the neighbourhood that would improve their lives. The top answers were more access to a range of shops and activities for children.
She said: “I am passionate about making Little Sutton a great village for my little girl to grow up in. We are acting in response to residents’ demands.”
