Will we have a Christmas Tree?

We appreciate it’s a long way off and that some people are unaware of the link between the Fair and the Christmas Tree but the proceeds of the running the Fair are used to fund the purchase, delivery, erection, lighting and insurance of the Downton Christmas Tree every year.  We also rely on the support of TreeMenders https://www.treemenders.org.uk/ when it is taken down.

We also ran the Partridge Fair but this is now being organised by a different group.

So, in these difficult and uncertain times we also want to bring some cheer to the village where we can and would like to confirm that the Cuckoo Fair will, as ever, be providing Downton with a village Christmas tree.

We hope this puts a little bit of sparkle in 2020 and very much hope that 2021 is a more optimisitic year but more especially we look forward to the prospect of welcoming you all to the best Fair ever in 2022!
