ALL WELCOME TO VERNON SQUARE SUMMER FAYRE IN RYDE


Vernon Square in Ryde will burst with music and colour at its annual Summer Fayre tomorrow (Saturday 6th July) from 14:00 to 18:00.

Attractions will include popular singing ensembles the Lively Ladies and Friends in Harmony as well as Vectis Brass Band and busker Tyler Gorman, who played at the recent Isle of Wight Festival. World-class classical pianist James Longford, who lives in the town, will also be performing.

Plants will be on sale and there will of course be a raffle and tombola, accompanied by plenty of food and drink including wine, tea, cakes and strawberries and cream.

Visitors will be able to judge the best exhibits in a display of miniature buildings made from paper, card and recycled old boxes.

The once derelict square off Melville Street was rescued by the Vernon Square Preservation Society in 1986. They purchased the land and turned it into a quiet green retreat with public access.

Entry £1, all in aid of the Vernon Square Conservation Society.
