Road Closures for the Fete - June 27th

Home » Newsroom » Road Closures for the Fete - June 27th
Fete 3

By now all of the affected households will have received notices about the road closures on Saturday June 27th and hopefully any alternative arrangements that need to be made will have been done.

The closures will last from noon until 1.30pm as the Grand Parade moves from Pool Bank car park, along the Lower High Street, High Street and Hockenhull Lane before turning right into Crossfields and then to the Community Centre via Meadow Close.

Few people should find themselves entirely without access to the wider world, as Tarporley Road is not affected and access to the by-pass to the south will be clear. In the case of an emergency, fire and ambulance personnel will be allowed through.

The procession will be bigger and more colourful than last years with a band, dancers, Cubs, Brownies, Beavers, Tarvin Rex and a full complement of kings, queens, lords, ladies and attendant royalty! All marshalled by the imposing figure of the Chester Town Crier.

Closing roads is quite a complicated task involving the local council and the Police. It is also quite an expensive undertaking and the Fete Committee is delighted to announce that the cost of this will be borne, as last year, by Simon Harding and the Broomheath Plantation. This is a generous and much appreciated gesture by this well-known local company and payment made makes a significant contribution to the overall funds raised.
