Event Statement – June 2020 Covid - 19
The Event, Culture and Hospitality sector have been hit hard during this Lock-Down Period and whilst communities are able to enjoy some relief in using public spaces recently, unfortunately those Community Events are still being restricted.
We are aware in Cheshire East we have many Community Events organised by residents for their own local communities, which encourage local traders and artist to showcase their talent and businesses. There is such a loss each time an event is being cancelled when volunteers have spent months planning and preparing for their exciting day.
Currently Cheshire East Council has to follow all Government guidance on social distancing and mass gathering therefore any activity or event deemed to encourage a public gathering that is not given Government or Council approval is not permitted on land either owned or managed by Cheshire East Council. The Council are making contact with all event organisers that planned events before September to discuss with the Councils Event Manager on their plans for either cancelling or postponing their events.
You can contact the Event Manager by email: Andrew.firstname.lastname@example.org or mobile no: 07834342979
The Council will be continuing to review all events in line with any new Government guidance that may be released and when appropriate will contact event organisers informing them of the current position and future requirements in staging their event.
