Beach fair off in 2010

EMERALD Beach will miss out on a popular seaside family day this year with the cancellation of the 2010 Emerald Beach Community Fair.

Planned for May 30, the Fair will next be held in 2011.

Organisers have said circumstances beyond their control forced the cancellation, namely the continuing deterioration of the surface and drainage at the Emerald Beach park, plus increases in insurance premiums.

The chairman of the organising committee, John Doherty, said they had been faced with insurance premiums more than double the 2009 level for a more comprehensive cover which they believed was necessary.

He said the committee also felt the ground conditions in their present state were dangerous.

He said the committee hoped to see improvements at the beachside park by next year.
