The Committee

The Soham Pumpkin Fair committee are a team who are responsible for the organisation and execution of everything that is required to ensure that each year's pumpkin fair runs successfully and that all resources that are required are obtained and managed, all expenditure is accounted for and all funds distributed to the chosen charities.

Work commences on the planning of each fair soon after Christmas, and committee meetings are held on the first Monday of each month at the Carpenters Arms Public House in Brook Street Soham at 8pm to co-ordinate work and assign tasks as they arise.

Meetings for 2017 are:

6th March 2017 7th August 2017 30th September 2017 (Soham Pumpkin Fair)
3rd April 2017 4th September 2017 2nd October 2017 (SPF Review)
8th May 2017 11th September 2017 23rd October 2017
5th June 2017 18th September 2017 6th November 2017 (AGM & Cheque Presentation)
3rd July 2017 25th September 2017

If you feel that you would like to join the team, and you are able to commit to the effort required not only throughout the year, but on the day of the fair as well, when we have a huge variety of work which the committee performs - ranging from erecting stalls and managing a barbecue to booking produce in for competitions and weighing pumpkins (and a host of other tasks inbetween!), then you are probably the person that we need. Please identify yourself to any current committee member, or email the Pumpkin Fair Office at We'll be pleased to hear from you.
