Following a special meeting of the Executive Committee to consider the impact of the current Coronavirus pandemic, the Committee would like to confirm that Bo’ness Children’s Fair Festival will not take place on 19 June 2020.
After considering the advice of various organisations, the Committee have unanimously agreed that a full Bo’ness Children’s Fair Festival will be targeted to be held on Friday, 28 August 2020.
This is obviously dependent on how the current crisis affecting the whole world progresses over the next weeks and months and the Committee will be monitoring this closely.
Whilst the Committee appreciates this a significant change for everyone involved, the primary consideration is to ensure the children of Kinneil Primary School get their special day.
However, the health and safety of all the children of Bo’ness and all family and friends who participate in the day is the over-riding consideration. Detailed discussions and planning will now take place with parents, schools and various organisations.
As the discussions progress the Fair Committee will provide additional information as soon as possible.
