We first discovered Spring Greens Fair in 2014 when Water was it’s theme.
School Days were attended by four local Primary Schools (Almeley, Shobdon, Gladestry and Dilwyn) one High School (Lady Hawkins) and around 7 Home Educated Children with their parents. School activities included river dipping and the construction of a model village that included a display of the elf houses WoW produced for the English Literacy Foundation’s primary reader series.
Spring Greens Fair took part in the Hereford River Carnival alongside the River Wye.

Eight schools this year and also, double the number of activities. Thank you to the organisers of Spring Greens Fair for inviting World of Water again and an even bigger thank you to each of the school groups from Almeley, Shobdon, Gladestry, Dilwyn, Pembridge, Eardisley, Kington and Staunton-on-Wye.
Nine schools added their enthusiasm to this year’s Spring Greens Fair. Thank you to all the school groups and their teachers from Presteigne, Dilwyn, Gladestry, Shobden, Kington, Clifford, Almeley, Eardisley and Pembridge.
In 2019, World of Water returned to do six school workshops and as the theme of the Fair was Air, we arranged a big clue hunt with clues ranging from the weight of rain clouds, the watery origins of crude oil and the harvesting of green crude for air travel.
Spring Greens Fair is now “under the encouragement and care of Edward & Emma Bulmer & family ” and WoW introduces Waterman Talkabouts for your School days.
Date for your 2023 diary Sunday 30th April from 10am – 6pm
