Cressacres Carp Syndicate | CLA Game Fair cancelled

12th July 2012
This year's CLA Game Fair has been cancelled due to bad weather and constitutes a blow to small rural businesses Today's announcement that the CLA Game Fair at Belvoir Castle is the latest casualty in this disastrously wet summer is a serious blow to small rural businesses.

Some 900 companies, from estate agents to gunsmiths, sporting agents and artists to purveyors of clothing, fishing tackle and fudge, had booked space for the Game Fair, due to be held next weekend (July 20-22), but the organisers, facing a desperate struggle against the elements, made the ‘heartbreaking' decision to cancel as yet more rain is forecast.

The knock-on effect on local pubs, b & bs and contractors in rural Lincolnshire is likely to run into millions. When Badminton Horse Trials was cancelled in May, it was thought to have cost £8-10 million in local revenue. Many businesses depend on the Game Fair and will now struggle to survive - when Harewood was cancelled in 2007, the overall loss was estimated at £50 million.
