SPRING EVENTS AND COVID-19

VE DAY PICNIC IN THE PARK – COVID 19

On 8th May we are planning to hold a Picnic in the Park event to celebrate VE Day. However, the spread of COVID 19 and advice to slow down the rate of infection by reducing social gatherings has caused us to rethink this event. It is up to all of us to play a part in stopping the spread.

Therefore, at the moment we are still pencilling the event in for 12noon – 2pm on 8th May. But, we will make the final call on the situation a week before on 1st May.

As we are uncertain as to whether the event will go ahead of not, we will do a more simple affair than we were planning. We’ll decorate the top part of the park with bunting, and create an atmosphere, and if it does go ahead maybe people could dress up in relevant ‘costume’ in something they have already, and bring their own picnic.

GREAT BRITISH SPRING CLEAN

We will also take a view nearer the time on whether this event will go ahead on 29th March. If it does, again, it will be a simple affair that keeps contact to a minimum.
