KINVER COUNTRY FAYRE POSTPONED DUE TO FLOODS
Kinver Country Fayre, due to take place on Sunday 19 June, has been postponed because of the event fields flooding.
On Friday, the River Stour burst its banks and completely flooded the fields. This meant that equipment was damaged and electrical installations became unusable. The river level has subsequently fallen, but the ground has remained wet and polluted.
The Fayre organisers had to make a decision to postpone the event, taking into account the high water level on Friday and the impossibility of having the ground firm enough to allow for set-up and then to take the high number of vehicles expected at the event. These factors, together with associated health & safety advice, meant that a difficult decision had to be taken to postpone.
“We have done all we can to advise everyone that the event is not taking place and we hope that people spread the word.” said Jane Sadler, one of the organisers. “These unprecedented weather conditions have dealt us a blow, but we are bouncing back, with plans already well underway to stage the Fayre on Sunday 4 September. Our headline act, the White Helmets, will be performing and most of our stallholders and other entertainers have already confirmed for that date. We would like to ask everyone for their understanding and we look forward to seeing them in September.”
