Garff Commissioners are urging parents in the area to join the Laxey Fair Committee.
This year’s event was ‘rested’ with the committee saying the format would have to be reconsidered.
A meeting is being held in the village on Monday, 2 October at 7pm to discuss the fair’s future.
The local authority hopes that if parents get involved it will be well-coordinated and meet the needs and expectations of the school community.
A meeting was arranged in July for parents from Laxey School, and the wider community, but not enough people went for the fair to be organised.
A second took place earlier this month and the commissioners say it was agreed by the volunteers that unless new people joined it will be almost impossible to form a new
Laxey Fair Committee.
The October meeting will take place at the commissioner’s offices on New Road.
