At last, GREAT NEWS……..IT’S ON! The All Saints Village Summer Show is back.
The committee regards the benefits of meeting socially, albeit at safe distances, to be an essential ingredient, far outweighing an online format, and so we have decided not to consider a virtual, online Show.
This of course comes with caveats. With the roll out of a vaccine prospects for the future are undoubtedly brighter, and although it is likely restrictions will prevail, we hope that they will be more relaxed. It is likely therefore that the Show will be an open air affair with classes, possibly in gazebos, a bit like an open air market. Although we plan to keep most classes, some may need to be dropped whilst other new classes may be added to respond to any restrictions that may prevail. However, be assured that safety and compliance will be paramount, and if we end up with a mini version, at least the spirit of the event will remain.
Whilst we cannot guarantee at this stage all our usual favourites, you can sleep easy in the knowledge that Spuds-in-a-Bag will be on the menu for sure. Hilary Pritchard has already ordered spuds and bags so put your order into her, tel no. 01297 33693 or her mobile 07960 191849, as soon as possible and get growing. Also, an early warning. Any Covid restrictions will place additional pressure on our current band of helpers so if you would like to join us contact me and I’ll make sure that you receive details next month.
Watch this space as we develop our ideas for the new look Show. You never know, the Victoria Sponge may even make a come back. You’ll have to wait and see!
