Dear Friends of the Pumpkin Fair,
Our theme for 2018 is 'Garden of Gold' - where flowers bloom, hope grows.
A national campaign to raise awareness of Childhood Cancer during the month of September.
We are supporting our local childhood cancer charity:
The Liam Fairhurst Foundation
and members of the Fairhurst family will be opening the fair.
Our other main beneficiaries are the three primary schools in Soham:
The Weatheralls, St. Andrews and The Shade
who have all requested funding for outdoor equipment.
As usual, there will be lots of competitions and displays linked with our theme, including arena events performed by local groups and schools. Also on show: vintage vehicles; charity and food stalls; craft and story-telling tents; a fun fair
and of course a wide range of produce.
Reg Brown , who had supported the fair for many years with a display of Bygones, passed away in February and will be sadly missed. However, we are very pleased to say that Anita, his wife, with the support of others will still attend with vintage displays.
A big thank you to all our sponsors, volunteers and organisations in and around Soham who help us in so many ways. We hope you enjoy the day.
