Crosspool 2021 Summer Fayre Cancelled

Barney Baloney & Henry

Due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, July’s hugely popular Crosspool Summer Fayre has had to be cancelled for the second year running.

This year’s event was due to take place on Saturday 3rd July, but with current government COVID-19 restrictions on mass gathering now having been extended to the 19th July 2021; it is with deep regret and disappointment that we have to cancel the Fayre for the second consecutive year.

This annual event, organised by the Crosspool Forum volunteers would normally attract hundreds of people to the CDYST sports field, Coldwell Lane, to enjoy an afternoon of fun and entertainment for the whole family.

We realise that this will be a huge disappointment to those who usually visit the fayre, and to our loyal stall holders’, entertainers and exhibitors, especially after such a difficult year. However with our NHS and other public services predicted to be under significant pressure and public safety still our top priority, we know that residents and visitors will fully understand that regrettably having to cancel was unavoidable.

There are hopes that there is light at the end of the tunnel and things may get better.

Please keep your eye on this website and the notice board in the precinct as if allowed we hope to hold a smaller event at a venue in Crosspool.
