The MAS team last week attended the 758th Ilkeston Charter Fair which is one of the largest and oldest street fairs in Europe and always attracts thousands of people when it rolls into town with its traditional fairgrounds rides and amusements.

The traditional ceremony, which includes the reading of the original 1252 Charter, takes place on a stage in front of Ilkeston Town Hall and always attracts local families and visitors – who join the showmen to officially welcome the fair.

We all indulged in roast chestnuts, bratwursts and burgers…. Yummy!!
