Everything, including food, farm produce, arts and crafts, the trade stands and even rural craftsmen and women: are all local, for the Wychwood Forest Fair, on Sunday, 2nd September, from 11am until 5pm in Lodge Farm, Ditchley, off the B4437,

Typical activities on the day include displays by the Wychwood Project, the Wychwood Barn Owl and Flora groups, and many other local conservation and community groups. A wide range of rural crafts, some of which allow you to ‘have a go’, are on display. The Wychwood Project second-hand book stall is a must for book-lovers.

As well as an arts and crafts tent, there is local Hatwells children’s Fun Fair,  local Morris dancing sides, Witney Town Band, a horse logging demonstration and fun family dog show and other entertainers. There are plenty of local food suppliers and farm produce, lots of refreshments, locally produced ice cream and a beer tent selling beer from the local Wychwood Brewery, based in Witney.

Finally, the Wychwood Forest Fair is looking for local volunteers. If you can give a couple of hours to help with any of the following it would be hugely appreciated:

  • Bar servers – you will need some experience for this.  One hour slots available throughout the day.
  • Grand draw ticket sellers – not a hard sell, people are usually very willing to buy.  Must be over 18 please.
  • Wychwood Project membership table – helping people to complete the membership form, talking enthusiastically about the project.
  • Marshall/s for the Breckon & Breckon marquee during set up – to ensures that all the stall holders know where their pitch is.

Full instructions for any volunteering role will be provided along with a voucher for a tea/coffee and cake from the Wychwood Project tea tent.

If you feel you can enjoy the day and spend a few hours helping, then call 07584 262437 or email: [email protected] or visit www.wychwoodproject.org
