Now much more than just a village fair Blackheath Village thanks its neighbours for the increasing support they have provided over the years to make the event a chance for the wider community to come together and celebrate the start of Spring. This year's event will once again be opened by teams of maypole dancers from Wonersh & Shamley Green and Chilworth infants' schools. In addition all the old favourites are there including the Billy Benson fairground rides, a strolling street entertainer, coconut shy, the fishing game, toss the bale and many more to a background of musicians and singers including our very own Charlotte Maggs.

Please refer to the plan of the fair for a rough guide as to where individual stalls are located. Key points though are the Hall, St Martin's Church and the Crossroads. Toilets can be found at the village hall and at the crossroads whilst there is a cubicle for disabled users in the Ladies WC area at the back of the hall. The Ladies toilet also has a baby changing fold down table.

There is a set down point for disabled visitors but no parking at the crossroads. Carers should proceed to the car park at the Abbey. The village is again very grateful to Mary Crittall and the Benedictine Abbey for providing the two car parking areas (see map) that ensure that visitors only have a short pleasant walk to the event.

All of the funds raised by the event go to support local community groups/projects which over the years have made a huge difference not just within the village but in the wider community as well.

Helping to ensure that the event can take place we are pleased to announce that our main sponsors are again Pewley’s Estate Agents and Barnett Hill whose expert chef will also be manning the pork stall so look out for that one. They are joined this year by TWM Solicitors who provide a local and friendly family legal service with expertise in London and the South East.
