A Funfair at King Georges V playing fields closed early and evacuated the area.

Weekend Funfair

Greens Funfair announced “Due to the fire that started on Saturday behind king George playing fields.

We made the quick decision to take down what equipment we could to remove from the area as fire started moving in the fun fair’s direction but luckily the fire brigade done a great job and got the fire under control 💪🏻 👏

We hope that every one in the area is safe and hope to see you all at our next event at Croxley green bank holiday fair in 2 weeks time
