In response to the Covid-19 pandemic (Coronavirus), the fete committee took the sad decision to cancel this year’s Sherfield Fete. The health of our many professionals, volunteers and visitors is our priority and we are sure cancellation was the correct course of action, even as it became clear that the decision would soon have been taken out of our hands.
All pre-booked stallholders, services, attractions and volunteer team leaders were contacted personally, and we refunded all stall fees in full.
Whilst we have been very mindful of the impact on all those with an involvement or interest in the fete, it was also agreed that postponement to a later date this year would not be feasible. This is an unprecedented situation and puts us all in uncharted territory.
Committee members are extremely grateful for the kind and sympathetic reception our unwelcome decision has received, and we look forward with energy and optimism to a bumper Sherfield Fete in what we hope will be happier times in 2021.
