This year’s Mid-Lent fairs due to take place in Grantham and Stamford have been cancelled.
The move comes as part of efforts to combat the spread of the Coronavirus.
South Kesteven District Council’s Cabinet Member for Culture and Visitor Economy, Cllr Rosemary Trollope-Bellew, said: “SKDC and the Showmen’s Guild of Great Britain, which organises the events, have jointly taken the decision to cancel both this year’s Mid-Lent fairs as, under the current circumstances, the safety of all our residents must come first.”
The fair was due in Stamford from Monday 15 March to Saturday 20 March, and in Grantham from Sunday 21 March to Wednesday 24 March.
Last year’s fairs were also cancelled due to Coronavirus.
