It starts today! Did we really use the term ‘umbrella events’?

After months of planning the traditional day for Cheam Charter Fair and the first day of activities has arrived. The weather is currently very wet and I am having second thoughts about using the term ‘umbrella events’ for the activities taking place from today up to the main fair on Saturday. This morning you should see a few stalls in Park Road which will be publicising the fair and fullfilling the terms of the charter. The Met Office say the rain will be clearing away by about 10:00 so come and say hello.
