Verwood Rotary Club on track for a Rustic 2021 !

by | May 8, 2021 | Community News

Some good news from Verwood’s Rotary Club.

The much loved Rustic Fayre which usually takes place on the last bank holiday Monday in August at Potterne Park Verwood, is definitely taking place this year.

Ironically, this year it was not COVID-19 that threatened to scupper the fayre as we come out of lockdown – but the lack of portable loos !

Every event and camp site this year wants portable loos because of staycation Britain – but after numerous quips from colleagues about ‘having nothing to go on’ Rustic chairman Vern Harris is pleased to report that loos have been sourced and booked.

Attractions at the fayre a looking very good too – with Adam’s Axemen, Punch and Judy, kids magic acts plus a barrel organ.

A Spitfire fly past has also been arranged.

Plenty of outdoor attractions in fact – including craft stalls and Classic Cars, a beer tent and a BBQ.

Over the years Verwood Rotary Rustic Fayre has raised over £121,000 for local charities.
