Greyton Rose Fair 2018 funds


Every year the visitors to The Rose Fair come, over a thousand go into the Rose Show, some go into open gardens and fill in the donation tins, many buys raffle tickets, the generous donate, readers buy the Rose Fair news, locals advertise in the publication,  sponsors come, businesses advertise, market stall holders arrive, money making initiatives donate the proceeds and  once the Rose Fair finishes we had over R90,000 in our accounts.
