Haddenham Parish Council have announced that the Haddenham Fair, due to take place in September as part of the annual Feast celebrations, has been cancelled this year. The decision was reached at the Parish Council meeting held on 24th August 2020, in the interest of avoiding risk to health and complying with ongoing Covid-19 social distancing requirements.
A spokesman for the council said that it felt that the safety measures available owing to the location of the fair fell short of what was needed to ensure safe operation.
Although the Parish Council and the Showmen explored various methods of running the show this year, the lack of being able to control access to the site meant that the Parish Council had to reluctantly refuse permission this year.
They hope to be able to re-start the fair next year
