Charlbury Street Fair - Saturday 17th September *UPDATE*

Street Fair will be taking place on Saturday, a decision for which the Fair's committee has deliberated upon and sought advice following the sad news of the death of Her Majesty last week. Not to proceed would have meant that the next Fair would be in 2023, owing to the lead times for arranging stalls, formal road closures and the like.

I have to announce that owing to the period of national mourning, the Lord-Lieutenant of Oxfordshire County, Mrs Marjorie Neasham Glasgow will be unable to open the Fair. At short notice, another prominent local figure, Liz Leffman, Leader of the County Council, has agreed to step in and help. I am sure Liz will be welcomed!

Another change is that the Spitfire fly-past has been cancelled, as the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight is not performing during the mourning period.
