More firms sign up to support the Midsummer Fayre

With just three weeks to go until Wellington goes Midsummer Fayre mad, we’re saying a big ‘thank you’ to two more local firms who’ve come forward to sponsor the event – Coleman Estates in Church Street and Clarke’s Solicitors at Landau Court. H2A volunteers Vicky Turner and ceremonial ale taster Jerry Baily (he’s the one in hat) dropped into their offices for a few photos earlier today.

Coleman’s are a leading family-run estate and letting agent, based in Wellington since 1998. Max Coleman told us that they had enjoyed the Midsummer Fayre since it was introduced in 2007 and were thrilled to be sponsoring it this year. Kate Coleman added:

“It is a great way to bring the community together and celebrate Wellington’s rich history. We are very excited to have a stall this year with a free competition and a few goodies so please pop by and say hello – we hope to see you there!”


Clarke’s Solicitors will also be bringing a stall to the event to celebrate their role as one of our supporters – and they’ve promised no suits or legal-speak! Rose Roe, conveyancing executive, said:

“We at Clarkes are a friendly and approachable firm that delivers the highest quality legal solutions at competitive rates. We take pride in the results we achieve for our clients and as such as we have enjoyed building lasting relationships that are the foundation of our success. An extension of this approach is for us to get out and about in the community we serve and ,where we can, support local worthwhile events such as this.”

We’re not just saying this because we have to – we really are grateful that these businesses have been willing to support what we do at the Midsummer Fayre, and without their contributions it would be a lot harder to host this year’s event. So next time you’re passing, give them a friendly wave.

We also need to thank many of you who have put your hands in your pockets and helped us to raise nearly £300 through our recent crowd funder. Again, this is really appreciated and makes our lives easier in terms of making all the sums add up. So thank you, Wellington!
