Sadly, we can't hold the hoped for Fete (planned for 10 July 2021) this year, given the Covid rules and advice that will still be in place, "... gatherings must not exceed 30 people unless covered by a legal exemption...".  


However, as last year, we are hoping to hold a tabletop event in front of the Parish Hall on the day that the Fete would have been, ie 10 July. (More details will emerge soon.) We feel we will be able to manage this, only allowing people (not more than 30) onto the forecourt when there is room and having marks on the ground to help people keep apart.
