This community event, which is attended and enjoyed by local people of all ages, has been a tradition for over 40 years and we hope it continues for many more, despite the challenges we face. In August 2016, building work began on the Pavilion, so we have had to adapt and improvise our plans for the day.
Our chosen beneficiaries for this year will be: Soham United Football Club Youth Teams, Pos+Ability; The Shade Primary School P.T.F.A. and Soham Community Archive - all worthy causes I'm sure you'll agree.
The fair will be opened by Joy and Richard Dean of Soham Books, which links nicely to our theme: '150 Years Of Beatrix Potter'. There are many competitions and displays linked with this including the revival of our fancy dress competition, a visit from the animals of South Angle Farm and a story-telling area.
As always, we would like to thank local organisations and businesses for their sponsorship, the Town Council for their support, our band of volunteers and helpers, but most of all, to you, the people of the area who make this day so worthwhile.
Good luck with your entries and enjoy your day at the Fair!
