Cambridgeshire's Community Fair is here to help your community

The Cambridgeshire Community Fair 2016 is fast approaching and it's a great way for local community organisations to find out the best ways to get funding, to recruit volunteers and much more.

The Fair, organised by local charity, Cambridgeshire ACRE, is taking place on Tuesday 7 June 2016 at the Burgess Hall in St Ives. It has been set up to help communities think about how they can fund, build and do more in their own villages and towns. The event is completely free of charge to attend and will be run from 2pm – 6pm. No booking is required – just turn up on the day.

Attendees will be able to join a range of talks and workshops by local experts, covering topics like funding for community projects, and neighbourhood planning; also available during the day there will be a ‘pop up’ Volunteer Centre, a one stop volunteering shop! So why not drop in to meet Volunteer Centre staff from across Cambridgeshire?

There will also be a marketplace of stalls from voluntary and community sector organisations, funders, local authorities and other local programmes, projects and groups. Stallholders will set out what they can do to help communities and will be very willing to help people with ideas to explore.
