A Norfolk heritage railway has cancelled its summer craft fair, which had been due to take place on Saturday, owing to continued coronavirus restrictions.
In a message on their website, the Dereham-based Mid-Norfolk Railway wrote: “Unfortunately due to the ongoing Coronavirus restrictions, we felt that we are unable to hold the Craft Fair, planned to take place on 17th July, with a variety of restrictions to make it a successful event.
“The stall holders have been contacted directly about this news. We are now investigating a future date to hold this event.”
The railway reopened to passengers for the first time since the pandemic began on July 3, and its return is otherwise proving a success.
An MNR spokesman said that the railway’s popular cream tea coaches had been fully booked on Saturday, July 10.
