Electoral Commission rules on activities during an election period state that campaign spending includes party advertising of ANY kind. Since we would have to declare that the Christmas Fair is run by Wells LibDems, even though it is nothing to do with the election campaign, the rules mean that the costs of running the fair are seen as campaign costs. Thus we are unable to run the Christmas Fair this year. We have therefore arranged for the booking of the Town Hall, the stall bookings and the promotion of the Fair to be taken over by a local school which is desperately in need of funds thus ensuring that it can go ahead as planned providing continuity, and benefit the community.
