Community Funding – We Need Your Help

We need you to give us your vote on the community funding projects, thank you.

The Best Day of the Year

Bo’ness Children’s Fair Festival
Requested funding: £14,041

Bo’ness Fair brings the Bo’ness Community together; bringing visitors into the area and the ability for our ex-pats from all over the world to watch the ceremony via our IT links.

We want to make 2023 a special year by making the Fair more sustainable by buying large items instead of hiring them. We would like to buy stages, a marquee and banners. Buying gives us the opportunity to facilitate more community and fundraising events.

We ask the Bo’ness people to please vote for us so that we can continue with our tradition of delivering THE BEST DAY OF THE YEAR.

Requested funding: £5,000

Bo’ness Fair Day as we know it has been in the same format since 1897. The people of Bo’ness have viewed the crowning ceremony of the 113 elected schoolgirls who were chosen as the Fair Queen from the various schools in Bo’ness. The festival was cancelled 12 times due to WWI, two Depression years and WWII. In 2020 and 2021 due to the Covid-19 pandemic the procession was cancelled, and the crowning ceremonies were held behind closed doors. 2022 at short notice from the Scottish Government we were granted permission to hold the Fair as near to normality as possible.
