A full risk assessment for Covid etc as been carried out using specialists and in consultation with Melton Borough Council and Leicestershire Public Health.

Most of the Fair is outside or in open halls. The event has been spaced out to minimise crowding and visitors should respect social distancing.

This is a particularly difficult time for cheesemakers, you can support them buy buying their cheese directly from them or through your local cheesemonger, deli, farmshop and specialist food store.
