Since the lockdown on 24th March, following the outbreak of the Corona virus (Covid-19) pandemic, arrangements for the Fete have been kept under review.
During the last few weeks many outdoor events this summer have been called off. It has also been widely reported that social distancing regulations are likely to remain in force until later this year. Regrettably it has therefore been decided to cancel the Summer Fete this year.
