Chasewater Summer Fair this Sunday!

Just a quick heads up that this Sunday (19th July 2015), there’s to be a Summer Fair at Chasewater – it runs from 12 noon until 4pm and features a variety of craft and food stalls for all to enjoy – this is at the same time as the Powerboat Grand Prix is running too, so there will be plenty to see and do.
