Cancellation of the Lucia Concert

It is with great regret that we have to inform you that we have taken the difficult decision to cancel Lucia this year. In the light of the recent increases in infection risk due to the new variant and the delta variant, we have had to review if we could continue safely. Given the layout of the church, the relatively poor ventilation and available space we have concluded that we would have to restrict numbers significantly to ensure a reasonably safe environment. Given this is one of our most popular events we have concluded that to limit numbers would impact on the very nature of the event itself.
We would like, for example, to look at some form of Easter concert and would very much hope that you and any children you have will get involved in that.
We also hope to have a bazaar event in the spring, in lieu of the cancelled Christmas one, there is a lot of merchandise that can be bought all the year round.

The LiNC committee wish you a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year
