Dorset Postcard Card has cancelled its summer fair planned for July 16 – saying dealer bookings were down 50% on last year.
Organiser David Stevens commented: “We normally get 20-25 dealers, but our numbers were down on last year by 50%, so we’ve cancelled it to avoid running it at a loss. Reading moving their date to our usual date has really knocked us, even though we moved our event back a fortnight to try and get around it.
“We will try again on another Sunday next year, and try and link in with one of the Exeter Saturday fairs, as we have dealers who like doing both over one weekend.”
The event was due to be held at Dorchester.
