A fundraising event, in memory of a Yate baby that died of meningitis, that was due to take this place this weekend has been postponed.

Claire Grove, 22, had organised the event in memory of her daughter Libby who was killed aged just six weeks after contracting meningococcal disease.

A huge event was due to take place this Saturday, August 10 however due to poor weather being forecast it has now been pushed back to September 14.

In a post on Facebook, Claire said: "Due to the horrible weather prediction for Saturday, I have been forced to make the decision to postpone the event, I have taken advice on this decision and I feel that is is best for the stallholders, public and the success of the event itself.

"The event is predominately outside based and with rain and winds up to possibly 50mph this is not fair on my stallholders to set up or for the public to be caught up in it as with unpredictable gazebos and electrics outside everyone’s safety is at risk.

"The new date is Saturday 14th September which (fingers crossed) is predicted to be a much nicer weekend.

"I will be contacting stallholders as soon as I can but if you are having a stall please contact me if you see this post to discuss.

"More info to come."
