A group of special needs student visit the fair for a special private morning out, where approximately 100 children attended with thier carers and teachers. The Showmans Guild offered free rides to young people from special needs schools in Cambridge. They also provided refreshments to all. This was an event that used to take place regularly and stopped for a number of years after a conversation with myself and the Showmans Guild last year, this event was reinstated. Hopefully this will take place again next year.
