It is with great regret that Sedgemoor District Council has announced that this year’s Apex Park Play Day, scheduled for Wednesday, 5th August will be cancelled.
The mammoth free event – which is the highlight of many children’s summer holiday – takes a voluntary committee and Sedgemoor District Council many hundreds of hours work to organise the 50+ activities.
With the uncertainty about the length of the lockdown, as well as social distancing, it was felt that the event would be impossible to control safely and effectively; given that last year over 7,000 people attended.
It was felt that it would be unfair for the committee to put in hours of work to plan the day which could ultimately be cancelled at a later date.
Rosie Pike, Chair of the Playday Committee said
“We are really sad that we have had to take this decision but it is the right thing to do. Have no fear, we will be back, bigger and better in August 2021 and we look forward to seeing you then.”
