Ducks are an endangered species

Confusion ahead this Saturday.

Taking place from 12pm-4pm is the 5th Burgess Hill Scout Group's annual Duck Fair at Janes Lane.

However, also taking place from 12pm-4pm is the West End Meadows Fun Day, an event organised by the town council. (information here)

This has to be a big blow for the Scouts. The Duck Fair is a fundraiser for the group, and their efforts may be compromised by the town council putting on a big event on the same day, at exactly the same time.

Was there any communication between the two groups? With big family events being rare in Burgess Hill, it's criminal that there are two taking place at the same time.

Why has this happened?
