Saturday 28th March
I am writing this with sadness, as the world is a very different place today, compared to when we set the date for the Quiz and Chips night, and even the week we intended to hold it.
With such uncertainty in the world it is very difficult to predict when our social lives will return to near-normal. In terms of rescheduling the quiz, I am very sorry to say, that it has not been possible to find a new date, for the foreseeable future, and prior to when the payment for the playground will be due.
We have thus made the very difficult decision to cancel the Quiz and Chips night.
Naturally, we will refund you the cost of your Quiz & Chips ticket. If however you would like to donate your £10 payment to the playground, we would be very grateful.
Our fundraising efforts are continuing, as we try to plug a small shortfall to reach 100% of our target, within the next week. We do however recognise the financial pressures upon us all, at this difficult time.
If you are in a position to donate your ticket money, please can you email me by the end of Monday 30th March to let me know. After this time, I shall start to process the refunds.
I am very sad that we haven't been able to host our quiz. Not only for the opportunities it presented in raising funds for the playground, but the spirit in which everyone joined in and supported was over-whelming. In six months time maybe we can learn how to socialise again and come together for another occasion!
The playground will continue to go ahead and even if we need adapt our plans we still have an amazing new play area to look forward to.
Many thanks once again for your support - it really has been appreciated and not taken for granted.
