[R]esidents are being invited to discuss plans for this year’s Appleby Horse Fair.
Cumbria County Council is holding a special meeting of the Upper Eden Neighbourhood Forum on Monday 23 May 2016, 7pm to 9pm at the Public Hall, Appleby. The Chair of the Fair’s multi-agency strategic coordinating group (MASCG), and Chief Executive of Eden District Council, Robin Hooper will present arrangements for the 2016 fair.
The meeting, chaired by Appleby County Councillor Martin Stephenson, will give local people the opportunity to hear about operational planning for the fair directly from the coordinating group and ask questions or raise concerns.
Councillor Stephenson said: “We’ll be discussing a range of issues relating to the fair including policing, traffic management and the regulation of caravan sites, so I’d encourage residents to come along and find out more.”
Following the fair there will be a public debrief meeting at Appleby Public Hall between 7pm and 9pm on Monday 18 July to discuss how it went and give residents an opportunity to make suggestions for the planning process for next year.
Appleby Horse Fair 2016 runs from 2nd June to 8th June. For more information visit www.applebyfair.org
