It is with great disappointment that the Corstorphine Fair Committee have decided to postpone this year’s Fair. After taking into consideration all the advice coming from the authorities about Covid 19 infection the committee felt it would have been irresponsible not to.
It is rescheduled to Saturday 5th June 2021.
Some of the thought processes behind this include:
- The chief scientific officer predicts the Coronavirus peak to be 10 to 14 weeks away, coinciding with the Fair date.
- It is unclear what our Public Liability Insurance cover would be in these exceptional circumstances.
- Would people really want to attend a large event, even if restrictions were lifted? We are dependent on a large attendance to help pay for the infrastructure required.
- Safety is our priority, the Fair is meant to be a safe fun day out.
We hope you understand and respect our decision and that you all turn out in force in 2021.
Participating Groups who have already paid registration fees etc will be contacted individually about reimbursement.
