Parsons Green Fair Returns
We were delighted to see the return of Parsons Green Fair after a two year break due to the pandemic.
July 29, 2022
Fulham is made up of several villages including Walham Green and Parsons Green, but unlike our predecessors we are less likely to live near our relatives or know our neighbours, so we all have to work a little harder to keep our sense of community spirit going.
Fulham Good Neighbours is one such organisation that does just that. Co-ordinating volunteer support in the home for those less able to manage, as well as organising regular lunches in local pubs and social events such as art groups, exercise and shared reading. It’s so important to keep these networks going both for those who need help and those who want to give it. Fulham Good Neighbours managed to keep many of the activities going through the lockdowns, albeit virtually, becoming a vital social link for many living on their own.
2016, was Fulham Good Neighbours first year of running Parsons Green Fair and Marston Properties Ltd first year as the main sponsor. The 10,000 attendees at the 2019 fair proved the popularity of the fair.
Of course the 2020 and 2021 fairs didn’t happen due to the Covid pandemic restrictions, but the 29th
fair of 2022 fair was all the more important as the fair returned with vigour. It was a lovely mix of entertainment by local schools and societies, craft stalls, church teas, fun fair rides, a petting zoo, food and treats, plus space to sit and chat with the community.
The Fulham Good Neighbour volunteers work very hard all year to organise the fair and ensure it is a continued success. All profits from the fair go to funding the work of Fulham Good Neighbours, which is fantastic.
If you don’t have time to volunteer, please be a good neighbour and come along to Parsons Green Fair in 2023.
We have been providing homes and workspaces in Fulham since 1895 and we are fully committed to supporting local businesses and communities. The fair is a stalwart community event that we feel should be maintained and supported.
