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 2018 are:

8th January 2018 4th June 2018 17th September 2018
12th February 2018 2nd July 2018 24th September 2018
12th March 2018 6th August 2018 29th September 2018 (Soham Pumpkin Fair)
16th April 2018 3rd September 2018 TBA (SPF Review)
14th May 2018 10th September 2018 TBA (AGM & Cheque Presentation)

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.
