Crich Village Fete

Crich Village Fete

Sat Aug 28 13:00:00 2021

The Fete Committee have decided to delay the fete by a few weeks to Saturday 28th August, the bank holiday weekend.

The original planned date of 17th July was less than four weeks after the proposed full easing of Covid restrictions and would have been vulnerable to any slippage in the government timetables.

The August date provides a little more certainty but is still dependent on them getting the required permissions, insurances and licenses. While it is a firm plan, there could still be requirements in place which will make it difficult!

Further details will be provided as soon as possible, so keep an eye on their Facebook page for updates!
