A Saturday afternoon towards the end of September has, since 2013, been a highlight in the Hanney calendar when the villages enjoy the Michaelmas Fayre, held around the ancient Butter Cross and Church Greens in West Hanney.
This has been followed in the evening by the Michaelmas Feast – a great way to spend a relaxed evening, reminiscing, enjoying a supper (and not having to cook or wash up!) and a glass of your favourite tipple, drawing the Raffle and the auctions – all of which proceeds add to the available funds for the Michaelmas Grants.
One of the legacies of the Fayre & Feast is that each year the profit is given in Grants to village organisations. Between 2013 and 2016, 40 Michaelmas Grants have been made and more details of each of these can be found on our Grants section.
