Become a “Friend of the Fair”




The Eaglesham Fair is undoubtedly one of the highlights of our local calendar, with this year’s event being held on Saturday 6th June, from 11am – 5pm. Organisation of this historic day has already begun and is well underway!

Every second year, anticipation builds up to what always turns out to be a fantastic day, enjoyed by thousands of people from the village and beyond. This old tradition, a staple of modern Eaglesham life, has been frequented and supported by local residents for over 50 years, and is an event that the Eaglesham Fair Committee work tirelessly on to ensure that not only does the day run smoothly, but that each and every person has a fantastic experience that they’ll never forget.

From helicopter rides to winning a goldfish, we all have a small nostalgia trip at the thought of the Fair, ranging back to when we were wee, right through to adulthood. Whether it be participating in the parade, a visit to the stalls, the manic dog shows, or the ever present (and essential!) beer tent, we all have our own memories.

While the Committee work hard organising the event, we know that Eaglesham residents wish to participate in the Fair and be involved in any way they can. We fully appreciate that many people are not in a position to provide large sponsorships or donations, but would like to help in some way. We’re also aware that some villagers are unable to attend, due to a clash of dates or perhaps ill-health or immobility.

As usual, we are offering the opportunity to feel part of the day by becoming a Friend of the Fair. For a minimum donation of only £10, you can truly be part of Eaglesham Fair, with the Committee ensuring that your kind donation will go a long way to making the day special.

This year, you’ll be kept right up to date with exactly how the Committee uses the funds. By becoming a Friend of the Fair, not only will you be contributing to the actual event itself, but a whole host of local groups and organisations will benefit greatly from your generosity. In return, once the Fair is over, you’ll receive a selection of photographs showing exactly where and how your money was spent.

Eaglesham Fair is a special event, and we feel that all residents should have the opportunity to enjoy the experience, whether you attend or not.

The Fair is run for the benefit of the whole village and looks to provide fun for all the family as well as an opportunity to raise funds to help local organisations.

All donations will go very long way to ensuring that the 2015 Eaglesham Fair is our most successful to date. Many thanks in advance.
