With coronavirus restriction lifted, Unlocking Warwick’s Summer Social was able to go ahead on July 31st in the garden of the Unitarian Chapel in Warwick High Street. And although the weather was more like spring than summer, with heavy showers all day, half an hour before guests arrived the sky cleared and it was a lovely evening.
After cancellation last year because of the lockdown, it was very good to be able to resume the annual event, which is a chance for volunteers, Visitor Centre staff and some of the town councillors to meet informally.
The Mayor, Richard Edgington, generously provided some Prosecco to start the evening in style, and there was some delicious buffet food supplied by the volunteers and coordinated by Helen Fellows.
Unlocking Warwick’s community events are still rather curtailed, with the Covid-19 infection rate still high, and even some double-vaccinated people getting reinfected, so we are proceeding with extreme caution, with indoor events suspended for the time being.
But we will hope to be able to stage a special musical tea for the Warwick Words History Festival in the Court House ballroom on October 10th. The full programme of events and information on booking tickets will be published shortly on the Warwick Words website: www.warwickwords.co.uk
