Get a Fair View!

A fair in West Derby Village will be one of the high points of the summer.

One of the highlights of the fair, on Saturday 3 August (9am-2pm), will be tours of the tower of St Mary’s Church. At nearly 50 metres high this will provide spectacular views across Liverpool.

And another historic part of the Village – the fascinating 16th century courthouse – will also be opened for tours during the fair.

The Lord Mayor, Councillor Gary Millar will officially open the fair.

As well as stalls, donkey rides, and a barbecue there will also be tractors and farm animals from Croxteth Home Farm on Show and a farmers’ market.

Proceeds from the event will go to Alder Hey Hospital and Merseyside Domestic Violence Services.

Local Councillors Pam Thomas, Daniel Barrington and Lana Orr, said; “It promises to be a special day. As well as a lot of fun activities there will be a chance to experience some of West Derby’s historic buildings. And the money raised will go to two very worthwhile causes.”
