DEPENDING ON THE LENGTH OF THE CORONA VIRUS LOCKDOWN A NUMBER OF OF EVENTS ON ESSEX DAYS OUT IN JUNE 2020 MAY WELL HAVE BEEN CANCELLED. AND ONCE THE LOCKDOWN IS LIFTED IT MAY BE THAT SOME EVENTS WE HAVE NOTED AS CANCELLED ARE REINSTATED. WE ARE TRYING TO KEEP OUR LISTINGS AS ACCURATE AS POSSIBLE BUT CLEARLY CANNOT GUARANTEE THAT THE INFORMATION WE HAVE IS CORRECT.

SO PLEASE FOLLOW THE LINKS WE PROVIDE TO THE EVENT WEBSITES AND ASCERTAIN WHETHER OR NOT EVENTS ARE TAKING PLACE. STAY SAFE AND KEEP ACTIVE – GO FOR WALKS OR BIKE RIDES IN THE COUNTRYSIDE OR COAST – BUT ONLY IF YOU CAN KEEP YOUR DISTANCE FROM OTHERS!! AND DO WHAT YOU CAN TO SUPPORT LOCAL DESTINATIONS. SPEND THE MONEY YOU WOULD HAVE SPENT ON VISITING SOMEWHERE OR GETTING ONLINE AND BUYING SOMETHING FROM THEM IF THAT IS POSSIBLE, OR MAKE A DONATION!
