Street Fair Parking

Over the next day or so, there will be a number of activities happening for this Saturday's Street Fair, where car owners can be very helpful to us by avoiding parking in a some areas (all marked out with cones).

Fairground Vehicles at the Playing Close

From about 11 am on Friday 16th, fairground vehicles will be arriving at the Playing Close from the Enstone Road and then turning into Poole Lane. As these vehicles are long, they need a wide turning circle, and would be blocked from doing so if vehicles are parked in the between the Co-op and the junction to Poole Lane. The same applies to the first few parking spots along Poole lane before the opening to the Playing Close. The fairground vehicles will be leaving in the early evening of Saturday 17th. We'd be grateful if those parking spots could be clear for this period.

The Bell
Greene King have kindly given permission for the use of the grounds of the Bell for the Street Fair. If the forecourt of the Bell, and the frontage to the road could be cleared of parked vehicles on Friday we would be very grateful. The contractors will be erecting the main stage on the site on Friday and will be taking it away at 8:00 am on Monday morning.

The Street Fair will also be using the top part of the car park behind the Bell for the Scout's climbing wall, which is a welcome return after four years. If that area can be kept clear, we would be very grateful (the area has now been marked out with cones).

Church Street

There is also the usual Road Closure on Church Street from 6pm to 9pm on Friday 16th for the tradition egg throwing competition, and we'd be grateful if the Church Street from above the side entrance to the Bell was kept clear of parked vehicles.

The main Street Fair road closure is from 8:00 am 17th to 11:00 pm. We expect to start erecting stalls promptly from 8:00am onwards, and if Church Street could be clear of parked cars before that time we would be very grateful.

We do seek to minimise the inconvenience, but some of this is unavoidable and we are very grateful for everybody's help in making this a great community event.
