At the time of writing much of England is in the new tier 4 and Christmas has been drastically reduced if not quite completely cancelled. With the new variant of SARS-COV2 stalking the streets we clearly won't be out again very soon. As a result, as stated in the previous mis-dated news item, we have had to cancel our traditional December and January activities. There will be no 2020 Boxing Day Tour of Cleethorpes, no Plough Sunday 2021 and no Waes-hal 2021.
On a more positive note, rollout of the first vaccine has at least started so we are going to plan for a less restricted future. We have had some socially distanced discussions and planned, in outline, events for 2021. These events will start to appear on the site over the next week or three starting with April Fool's Day and finishing with Waes-hal 2022!
Obviously, we can't be sure that it will be safe to dance by April 1st. All of the events will therefore be marked as unconfirmed and will only be confirmed when we think it is safe and the venues agree that it is safe for us to visit, probably when the restrictions on pubs opening are removed.
Let's keep our fingers crossed for a morris enriched 2021.
