The St. Margaret’s Traders Association is a group of 40+ local traders dedicated to helping improve the community. In the past year along they have raised over £16,000 for the community. After the St. Margarets Christmas fair they donated £7,000 to Orleans Infant School and St. Stephens Junior School.
