Following the government announcement on the 14th of June extending the current lockdown it is with a heavy heart that I have to cancel the event for another year.

The decision has not been taken lightly, I’ve been in consultation with the Landlord of The White Horse and he cannot allow the event to proceed due to the restrictions (https://www.instituteforgovernment.org.uk/explainers/coronavirus-lockdown-rules-four-nations-uk) Sadly as the pub tenants have handed back their lease and will be leaving later this summer there is no opportunity to rebook the event this year either as we are running the Swavesey Cider and Gin Festival in late July (although that’s in danger of cancellation now too).

It’s a sad state of affairs but I’d like to thank you all for your encouragement and support, if anyone feels up to throwing a couple of quid into the charity bucket by clicking here: https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/swaveseypinball as I have understood it MIND want the money this way and have worked out some financial arrangement with Just Giving that does not disadvantage them.

Stay safe, we’ll try again next year, third times the charm.........

Guys - if anyone has a hotel room booked that they cant get refunded - please let me know. Would need to be a twin room.

Hi - do you still need a hotel room ? Got a twin and a double that I need to amend for that weekend . Cannot get refund or vouchers as I booked on saver rate (. Away back in February when I naively thought the restrictions would be lifted )

Thanks to COVID last weekends Swavesey Pinball Show (https://sites.google.com/site/swaveseypinball/) was cancelled for the second year running. However the generosity of many of those who usually attend meant that we still managed to support this years chosen charity MIND.

If you fancy chipping in a couple of quid the link to the Just Giving page is still active here: https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/swaveseypinball

MIND have told me that the cost of these generous donations could keep their Infoline open for a whole day, ready to answer calls for support and help, whilst also keep their online peer support community open for three hours, helping people connect with others and feel less alone.

Thank you all
🙏
