Mill Road Winter Fair is a celebration of the area’s community, held always on the first Saturday in December. In 2018 it will take place on 1st December. Preparations have already been underway for months.! It’s an event created and run by people from the Mill Road area with almost everyone joining in and contributing something; community groups, faith centres, businesses, entertainers, residents, visitors … everyone has something individual to contribute. Why not Volunteer?
The main purposes of the Fair are to:
- celebrate the richness of life in the neighbourhood of Mill Road, highlighting the diverse opportunities that exist for local residents and aiming to attract interest in Mill Road and its environs from other Cambridge residents not familiar with the area
- encourage groups and individuals to demonstrate and exhibit works which represent their culture and way of life
- facilitate each group and individual to raise money for whichever charity or good cause they choose
- promote interest in each representative group or individual and their work
- foster friendship and strengthen cooperation between communities on both sides of the railway bridge.
