With great regret, we must announce that the 2021 Findon Sheep Fair will not be taking place.
Firstly, we want to say thank you to everyone who gave their feedback and ideas on what our beloved Sheep Fair should do this summer. We read every message posted on our website and all the comments from the Findon News and took all your thoughts and opinions into account. It is remarkable to see how passionate the village is about our event, which we truly appreciate, and felt that we had to listen to the most concerned or worried about our Sheep Fair and Village Festival.
After careful consideration and countless chats between the committee, the council, and all involved, we unfortunately cannot find a way to make this year’s event a possibility. The safety of everyone attending is of the utmost importance, and with fast changing rules and guidelines from the government, planning an event of this magnitude in a short time is just not feasible, and keeping everybody safe and healthy both in the village and further afield is our biggest priority.
We are confident the Findon Sheep Fair will be back bigger and better than ever in 2022, and we thank you for your continued support.
Simon Stace (Sheep Fair Committee Chairman)
