SEVERAL of the attractions at this year's October Fair in Ledbury will be in the Bye Street car park as an experiment.

The fair's organisers used to use the cattle market site but this has now been taken over by the community hospital, which is currently under construction.

Bye Street itself will be closed from its junction with High Street to just short of the entrance to St Katherine's car park from Sunday, October 7 to midnight on Tuesday, October 9.

The whole of High Street, plus the Homend as far as the Bank Crescent junction, will also be closed from 5.30pm to 11pm on both Monday and Tuesday evenings.
