Buxhall & Shelland Church Fete 2020 – CANCELLED
Sadly, we have taken the difficult decision due to the Covid-19 pandemic
(Coronavirus) to cancel this year’s Fete, which was to take place on the 1st
August in the grounds of Copinger Hall
Everyone involved in the fete has made this decision with a heavy heart,
knowing how much the Fete is looked forward to and enjoyed by people.
However, given the situation - particularly relating to large gatherings and the
likelihood that this will continue for some months - it was felt better to end any
Ultimately, the health and well being of visitors to the Fete and those involved
in running it is our priority and we are sure cancellation is the correct course of
Nobody knows of course just how long the Government's lockdown will last or
indeed when and how this might be relaxed and large gatherings allowed. Even
when this happens, many people will no doubt have mixed feelings about
attending such gatherings?
We will monitor developments and, if the restrictions are removed over the
Summer, it may be possible to hold some sort of village event in place of the
Fete, which could potentially be held on the playing field - so look out for any
We look forward with energy and optimism to next year's Fete, which we will
try to make better than ever in what we hope will be happier times......so stay
tuned and stay safe.
