A statement in view of enquiries regarding the current Coronavirus situation.
The Food Festival’s priority is to safeguard the health of all attendees – our visitors, exhibitors, volunteers, sponsors, and supporters. We will abide by the Government’s advice and recommendations applicable at that time.
To maximise the safety of all attendees we aim to supply additional hand washing/sanitising facilities to be made widely available. Notices reminding everyone of the importance of handwashing and other protective measures will be displayed. Exhibitors will be reminded about the importance of hygiene during food preparations. Our Food Safety Officer will be at the festival to monitor compliance with food safety, as in previous years. Our festival volunteers will be on hand to advise and support with any concerns.
We continue to plan and organise for the September event, on the basis that the festival will go ahead. We will continue to review the position, developing all necessary measures and keeping you informed as the situation develops
