Donkey derby at the heart of Stubbington fayre’s 50th anniversary

Have your say

The annual Stubbington Fayre and Donkey Derby will be celebrating its 50th anniversary at the end of the month.

The fayre is organised by members of Fareham Lions Club, Crofton Lions Club, Stubbington Councillors and residents of Stubbington.

It provides more than 100 local organisations with the opportunity to raise money themselves or for a good cause.

The showpiece of the fayre will be the Donkey Derby, which will see seven races throughout the day, with children from the Stubbington area acting as the donkeys’ jockeys.

As well as the derby there will be a Punch and Judy show and family activities.

Other arena events will include the Big Noise Samba Band, The Stubbington Springboard Gymnastics Club and the Locks Heath Silhouette Majorettes.

The event will be opened on Monday, August 31, at 11am by Mayor of Fareham, Cllr Mike Ford at Stubbington recreation ground.
