As you are probably all aware by now, a lockdown has been imposed for England for most of November. This will run from Thursday 5th November until 02nd December.
The print edition of Fippenny News for November had already been printed and was being distributed when the November lockdown was announced. As we learn more about the effect on any of the events in and around the parish which were mentioned in the magazine we’ll update this news article and make any changes we need to in the calendar pages of the web site.
If you would like us to include information about support for residents of the parish, or other items of interest, please get in touch.
In ‘Volunteering Opportunities in Okeford Fitzpaine‘ on page 4 of the November edition we printed an old email address for Jeremy Gartside.
The correct address is firstname.lastname@example.org
Art Trail – Child Okeford
This event, planned for the last weekend in November, has been cancelled.
