Event Statement – 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 community events are still restricted.
We have many community events in Cheshire East organised by residents for their own local communities. They 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.
We must follow all Government guidance on social distancing and mass gathering. 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.
You can contact the Event Manager by email: Andrew.firstname.lastname@example.org or mobile no: 07834342979
The Council continues to review all events in line with Government guidance and the Supplementary Guidance the Council has supplied. When appropriate they will contact event organisers informing them of the current position and future requirements in staging their event.
(Updated February 2021)
The following documents have been produced by the Government and Industry experts to provide guidance in operating events, hospitality and markets during restrictions.
Cheshire East Council will follow the guidance by Government on forthcoming event opportunities.
Advise on Covid-19 Risk Assessments can be found within the documents. Cheshire East Council must receive a suitable risk assessment that controls hazards expected around the normal operation including measures in place to manage COVID-19.
