All the fun of the fair at Newbold Comyn

Leamington Editorial 14th May, 2014 Updated: 28th Oct, 2016

A FREE charity spring fair is being held on Leamington’s Newbold Comyn to raise money for a hospice which provides care for terminally ill babies.

Staff at The Newbold Comyn Arms are hosting the event on Saturday (May 17) to raise money for Coventry-based Zoe’s Place Baby Hospice, which was started by John Scarisbrick, father of the pub’s owner Sarah Miller.

The event, organised by Warwick -based digital marketing and social media agency Media Beard, will feature about 20 stalls, including five selling vintage clothing, one giving away free comic books, and others concentrating on balloon art, face-painting, jewellery, candles, perfumes and cosmetics, free art classes for children, cakes and more.

There will be a barbecue selling pulled pork batches, together with sharing platters, tea, coffee and drinks as well as free giveaways.

“It’s obviously a charity very close to my heart, and we’ve raised thousands of pounds for them in the past.” said Sarah. “We would do anything we can to support these little babies and their families.”

People can still buy a table for £15 to display and sell their items. Stallholders keep their profits but all the money the pub makes from selling the tables is going to the hospice.

The fair runs from 11am to 3pm.
