Cockington Fayre cancelled on ‘safety grounds’ because of weather

Torquay’s famous Cockington Fayre, due to be held on Wednesday August 2, has been cancelled due to bad weather. It is the first time the event,which was expected to raise up to £10,000 for the village’s St Matthew’s Church, has been called off in more than a decade.

A traditional English summer fayre in the grounds of Cockington Court, it has been a fixture on the summer calendar in Torbay for more than 50 years.
