Swanage Fish and Food Festival cancelled

THIS year’s Swanage Fish and Food Festival has been cancelled due to the wet and windy weather that is predicted for this weekend.
The popular festival was scheduled to take place over June 15-16 but organisers say that in light of the coming wet weather, they have been forced to cancel the event as they cannot guarantee the safety of attendees.
A festival spokesperson said: “It is with great sadness and disappointment that we have taken the very difficult decision to cancel the Swanage Fish and Food Festival due to the very wet and windy weather predictions over the coming days.
“Please share this announcement with friend and family far and wide so that we can prevent people making unnecessary trips to Swanage and feeling let down.
“We are totally committed to holding a successful and safe festival for all and believe that going ahead this weekend would put this in jeopardy.
“We wish to thank everyone who has booked a stall, generously sponsored us, agreeing to be part of the demo chef team, all of our wonderful volunteers, everyone who has promoted us in every medium, all businesses who have dressed a window and donated raffle prizes.
“We couldn’t do this without you all and we are so lucky to have you in the fish and food family.
“We will be back! Watch this space!”
