A grant of £7,600 grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund has been awarded to the Fair to contribute towards staging a WW1 commemoration. The funds will allow the event to commemorate the role of the county in raising a yeomanry (and paying tribute to those who lost their lives in the conflict) while telling the story of the impact of the First World War on the rural community.
