THE date has been announced for this year's Wychwood Forest Fair.

The 2018 celebration of forestry, environment and rural craft will be held on Sunday, September 2.

As usual it is set to include local food, farm produce, arts and crafts, rural craftsmen and women, trade stands, and rides from Hatwell's Fun Fair.

Organisers from the Wychwood Project conservation group have already put out an appeal for volunteers to help make the day go smoothly, but said they are also on the look-out for new stands, attractions, entertainers and crafters.
