Yes, it is with heavy heart that, following today's announcement of further COVID-related restrictions, the BVA and the Gardening Club has had to take the decision to cancel the Apple Day event scheduled for Sunday 20th September.
I feel particularly disappointed for the Gardening Club members who have put in a lot of time and effort to date in planning for the event, and I am sure you would want me to thank them on your behalf. Apple Day is undoubtedly one of the highlights of the Brettenham year, so it's extremely sad to know that the plans can't come to fruition.
I'm conscious that not everyone in the village is on this email list, so if you can think of anyone who might not receive this and was perhaps planning on coming along (in the light of the advert in the September magazine), can you please let them know. It's some small consolation that we did at least manage to squeeze in one successful social event over the Summer, which is more than can be said of most communities.
Here's hoping Brettenham Apple Day 2021 will be bigger and better than ever.
