Tollerton Village Fayre
The Tollerton Village Fayre is a traditional style fete held annually on the community open space in Tollerton, Nottinghamshire. The Fayre is organised by volunteers as part of the work of the community trust. The fayre is organised to benefit local groups and causes in Tollerton and the surrounding villages. It provides an opportunity for these groups to fundraise, showcase their work or contribution to the community, attract members and recruit volunteers. Following public consultation in 2016 the Village Fayre was recognised in the parish plan as being important for bringing the village together and encouraging community spirit in Tollerton. Find out more about the next village fayre on their blog.
Grant aid is available for groups in Tollerton through the Community Trust. The parish council provides the Trust with a grant to distribute to support community activity in Tollerton.
