16th March 2021.
The Burnham Market Parish Council have voted not to allow the use of the greens for the 2021 Craft Fair or to open up the Playing field and run Car Parking on the Playing Field which is necessary to also allow the event to be held.
This means that there will be no 2021 Craft Fair.
However, we expect to be able to resume and hold the event again in August 2022
The event is organised by it’s organisers and helpers on the day on a 100% voluntary basis, with all fundraising donations from stall holders taking part in the event (minus minimal necessary expenses to run the event) being distributed back into the local community. These include;
Burnham Market Primary School (allocated for school outings)
Burnham Market Nursery
Heritage House Day Care Centre
Burnham Market Community Car Scheme,
Contributions to the PC’s towards play equipment in Burnham Market and Burnham Overy Staithe,
Community Nurses and Equipment at the Doctors surgery
