Parade

We are working hard to go ahead as usual on Saturday 7th August, however we have had to make some changes this year to ensure we are able to manage covid restrictions. We have decided we will not have a parade this year. This was a difficult decision but it felt right to make sure we can focus on making the event safe and enjoyable for everyone.
