Is it the fair outside?
The fair is an outdoor event. Some pitches are covered by marquees. Every effort is made to ensure that the ground is safe, but if the weather is wet, the ground may be muddy, so please wear suitable footwear.
Can we bring dogs and children to the fair?
Children under control are welcome on the Salvo Fair site. Dogs on leads are welcome on the fair site. We ask that EVERYONE TAKES SPECIAL CARE to avoid injury. Some Salvo Fair exhibits are big, heavy and sharp. Our advice is to leave children and dogs at home, or elsewhere on the Stubbings site, but we are not nannies and do not wish to prevent responsible adults from bringing children and dogs on to the site. JUST TAKE EXTRA CARE!
Is there Parking?
Yes, there is parking near to the fair site. There are special access roads behind the stands which can be used by people wishing to pick up items bought. Please do not struggle across the field to your car with heavy or awkward objects. Ask the exhibitor to carry the item, or to organise access for your car, then ask the exhibitor to put the item in your car. Please take special care when removing items when you get home, and make sure there are enough helpers to lift heavy or awkward items.
