Community Award

Long serving Mangotsfield Festival Committee member was honoured recently at the South Gloucestershire Chair’s Community Awards.

Nick Faire had been involved as a volunteer in the Mangotsfield Festival for over ten years. During that time he had been a regular member of the committee devoting himself to monthly meetings throughout the year as well as helping out during the festival itself.

He had over this time provided the website for the festival, which is our primary source of information, for free as well as acting as official photographer.

Nick was invaluable in contributing to the success of the festival and its current standing. His contribution has raised the festival to a new level of professionalism.

Nick Faire passed away after a short illness and the award was collected on his behalf by his stepson (Peter) and son (Tom). His contribution will be sorely missed.
