Countryside Fair Sponsorship.  As many of you know Tempest Ford of Lichfield has now ceased trading so will be sadly missed both as our main sponsor and in the way they have supported Whittington over the years. Without financial sponsorship the Fair Committee would be unable to cover the Fair set up costs. The sponsorship ensures that in the eventuality of bad weather (as we had last year), we don’t make a loss. We are grateful for the support of our many other sponsors, including Richard Winterton, our local auctioneers, and Arthur Price for yet again providing the main prize in our Grand Draw. Our thanks to all our many sponsors, including those who donate anonymously:

 Platinum and Gold Sponsors: Richard Winterton Auctioneers, Downes Property, Downes and Daughters Estate Agency, Tamworth Co-operative Society, Packington Free Range, Eco Polyurethane Systems Ltd, Elswick House Nursery School and Chambers Group.

Silver Sponsors: New Farm Produce, Masonry Solutions.

Would you like to sponsor this popular and prestigious event and take advantage of an ideal opportunity to showcase and promote your organisation? There is always a great deal of publicity attached to the event, using local radio and a wide circulation of local newspapers. We can also offer free tickets which you can use as corporate entertainment for your clients, including reserved seating in the main arena. You can help us by buying advertising space in the official event programme or by making a donation. If you feel able to sponsor or donate to our 2017 or future events, please contact Steve Barr on 01543 432605. Page 15
