The community website for Pen Selwood
The Fete Committee has decided to cancel the 2020 Pen Selwood Fete.
We have spoken to many stallholders and those who provide support for the Fete over the past week. Their views have been unanimous in thinking the Fete should not go ahead. The difficulty in complying with social distancing guidelines concerned many, some feel they are unwilling to support or attend the event for fear of being exposed to the virus, and others thought it unwise to invite crowds into our village from the surrounding area at this time.
The Committee has considered holding the event later in the year. It has rejected this idea as the effect of the pandemic is indeterminate in time, making planning an event too tricky.
I thank you all for your kind support. We will be back next March with renewed vigour.
