The popular Parsons Green fair is back and will be packed with family fun.

The fair has been running for more than 25 years and organisers Fulham Good Neighbours say the event on Saturday 1 July will be one of the best yet.

The fun begins at 11.30am and entrance is free.

The fair was run by local resident until 2015. Fulham Good Neighbours say they are delighted they could now take over and revive the popular event after just one year’s break.

“We’re really excited”, said Chris Mikata-Pralat, director of the charity based in Rosaline Road.

“It’s a great opportunity for people to come together and celebrate our community.

“Come along, it will be a really fun day for the whole family.”

Money raised at the event will go towards the charity’s work helping older residents and people with disabilities. It has more than 50 volunteers who help people with tasks at home such as DIY and gardening, as well as run a befriending scheme and social clubs. It won the Best Charity category in last year’s Brilliant Business Awards.

The fun will include:

  • 100 stalls
  • Fairground rides
  • Punch and Judy shows
  • A petting zoo
  • Fulham Brass Band
  • A magician
  • Dancers
  • Stilt walkers
  • Food and drink

You can find out more at the fair’s webpage.

The event is sponsored by Marston Properties Limited.
