Running in parallel and in conjunction with The Pageant of Sport 2012, the Town Partnership will be holding the Summer Fair in its New Milton Crafts 2012 Series at The New Milton Memorial Centre. Because of this, access to the sites and parking is strictly limited and will be closely controlled.
Access to the sites will be by Vehicle Pass only and this must be displayed on any vehicle arriving at either Event.
Long Term Parking is available very close to The Recreation Ground – Crossmeads Public Car Park and signs will clearly indicate the route to that Car Park. It is then only a few short minutes walk to The Recreation Ground.
One Vehicle Pass has been supplied to us. Because of the number or vehicles involved in the setup and the event itself, parking can only be provided on the Recreation Ground for one vehicle per Stallholder.
Access to the Recreation Ground will not be available until 7:00 am and the access point will close promptly at 9:45 am. All setup must be completed by 10:15 am and vehicles parked in the allocated spaces.
Movement of Vehicles after 10:15 am may only be undertaken with express permission being obtained from the Chief Marshall.
