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.

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.
