Change of lo­ca­tion for spring fair

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - NEWS -

AN an­nual fair has been moved from its nor­mal site be­cause of heavy rain.

The Chat­teris Spring Fun Fair was due to ar­rive and set up in Wenny Road Re­cre­ation Ground yes­ter­day, ready to be opened to the public at the week­end.

How­ever, be­cause of the amount of rain that has fallen in the area over the past month, mak­ing the ground un­suit­able for heavy ve­hi­cles, it has been de­cided by Fen­land Dis­trict Coun­cil and Chat­teris Town Coun­cil to re­site the fair at Fur­row­fields Car Park, Fur­row­fields Road, Chat­teris.

Ad­di­tional space will also be re­quired for a few res­i­den­tial car­a­vans and or­gan­is­ers have set aside an area of the small car park op­po­site the fair site for these ve­hi­cles.

A spokesman said the re­lo­ca­tion of the car­a­vans would en­sure that the fair can still take place and be en­joyed by the res­i­dents of Chat­teris this year.

It is pro­posed the mo­bile gym fa­cil­ity will be moved on Thurs­day May 10 to the car park off Wood Street in Chat­teris.

Fen­land Dis­trict Coun­cil have apol­o­gised for any in­con­ve­nience caused to reg­u­lar users of the car parks af­fected by the changes to the ar­range­ments.

The spring fair will be open from Thurs­day, May 10 un­til Satur­day, May 12.
