We do our best to ensure that the Mill Road Winter Fair is a safe and enjoyable event for all participants.
Stewards were available all day to assist visitors. They were their fluorescent yellow safety jackets with “Mill Road Winter Fair” written on the back.
The Control Centre was located at Regent Language School next to the railway bridge (on the Petersfield side of Mill Road).
Anyone requiring First Aid was urged to contact the nearest steward or go to the First Aid point outside the Control Centre.
On the day of the Fair, Mill Road was closed to traffic, including cyclists, between East Road and Coleridge Road from 10.30am until 4.30pm. Diversions were signposted. The rest of Mill Road and adjoining streets were open to traffic. In some circumstances, the direction of traffic in adjacent streets was different from normal and some road barriers normally closed were open.
Although the road was closed, we encouraged everyone to exercise caution as there was be occasional traffic movements including the possibility of movements from the emergency services. We were grateful that everyone remained alert and complied promptly with any instructions from stewards or emergency services.
If you have any questions about the road closure please email email@example.com or phone 07982 810 343
We are especially looking for stewards and for people to help in other ways on the day of the Fair. The Fair couldn't happen without the support of volunteers.
