This year’s Mid-Lent fairs in Grantham and Stamford have been cancelled as part of efforts to combat the spread of the Coronavirus.

The decision to cancel the popular annual fairs was taken jointly by South Kesteven District Council, working in association with event organisers, the Showmen’s Guild of Great Britain.

SKDC Leader Cllr Kelham Cooke said: “SKDC and the Showmen’s Guild have jointly taken the decision to cancel this year’s Mid-Lent fairs in both Stamford and Grantham as the safety of all our residents must come first.”

The fair was due in Stamford from Monday 23 March to Saturday 28 March, and Grantham from Sunday 29 March to Wednesday 1 April.
