Chinnor Parish Council Full Council met on Monday night and issued the following statement on it’s website :”As a Council we have now had many conversations about the August marquee.
After much careful consideration and discussion it was agreed by Council, with saddened hearts, to cancel the marquee this year.
This decision was a tough one as you can image and it comes with concern over the social distancing requirements required, probably for a long time ahead.
We cannot see how the marquee could be a safe environment and social distancing could be maintained, especially if the weather isn’t on our side!”
All of the hirers who had requested usage of the marquee have been informed and they have all agreed that this was the best decision in the current climate, although very disappointing for all.
The marquee is set to return in August 2021.
