Lovely people of Bristol!

Lovers of the City Farm!

Past supporters and people keen to get involved this year!

It is that time of year again when we are recruiting people to help us with the WORLD FAMOUS St Werburghs City Farm SUMMER FAIR!

This wonderful event promises bands, performers, loads of workshops, dancing, singing, cabaret, lcoally sourced international food, local cider and ale bar, BBQ, Family area at Boiling Wells, amphitheatre space, Carnival Parade, costume making, loads of stalls and plenty more.

There are loads of opportunities to get involved with this absolutely crucial fundraiser for the City Farm. The fair helps to pay for animal feed and maintenance to the farm site – replacing shed rooves, mending fences, paying the vet, and loads of other things which allow the farm to open 365 days a year. This year we are also celebrating 30 years of the City Farm, so we have big plans for making the event really special this year…

We need help with:
Manning the gates
Serving on the farm BBQ
Managing traffic
Stewarding different areas of the site
Helping with kids art workshops
Love Patrol! Looking after the crew
Helping on the carnival procession
Setting up and Packing away on the day

Farm Fair volunteers will get a hot, delicious meal from our new ‘crew food’ kitchen! As well as a drink from our wonderful bar! And this year they’ll be looked after by the Love Patrol who’ll be making sure that everyone is fed, watered and supported while they are working.

And we’ll also be having a BBQ at Boiling Wells to say thank you to everyone, with Local burgers, yummy veggie options, Music and bonfire. We’re planning for this to be on Sunday 4th July, 5pm at Boiling Wells. Thats the sunday after St Pauls Carnival.

There is a volunteer form attached here, if you would like to get involved, please fill it out and either mail it back to or drop it in or post it to the farm office. And feel free to pass it on!

Warm Wishes for Spring!

The Farm Fair team

Manning the gates?!? Charging people £3 to enter public streets?!? Inspecting wristbands?!?

Organized out of Hamilton House, I see.

Finally, I understand what the rioters meant, when they chanted “Who’s streets? Our streets!”
