Organisers of the popular annual Artisan Cheese Fair anounced they are preparing to go ahead now that Covid infections are under control.
Matthew O’Callaghan, who co-ordinates the event, told the Melton Times this week: “I am delighted that we’re going to be holding the cheese fair once again in Melton.
“It’s one of our most popular events and attracts around 60 cheesemakers from the UK and Ireland, as well as other complimentary food and drink offers.
“The event attracts between 6, 000 and 8,000 visitors.

“We will also be holding the cheese awards as well on the week prior to the fair.”
The cheese fair, which is held in the town’s livestock market, was due to be held in early May last year but was cancelled due to a ban on public events.
