Bank Holiday Monday 27th May

Denham Village Fayre

I'm planning to go to the Denham Village Fayre on Bank Holiday Monday this year. Village Road is closed to traffic with stalls lining the road offering a huge range of interesting items for sale. The pubs and Da Remo, the Italian restaurant are open and serve food.

St Mary's Parish Church is open all day for visitors and hosts short concerts.

Check out the link below and if you would like to come I am suggesting we meet at my house and share cars (10 mins away) as parking is very difficult. http://www.denhamvillagefayre.org.uk/

I'm advised that we only need a couple of hours there and would suggest that we meet at my house at 11:00 and perhaps have some lunch there.
