The original plan was to join the fair at Millennium Park for the annual bank holiday fun with stalls and a bumper car boot sale. This however were thwarted by red tape imposed by North Somerset Council. Hopes are high all will be resolved for 2023. However the switch to an open day at Hannah More Road HQ was a fantastic success with hundreds of pounds being raised for funds and charity.
