Rochford District Council postpones key events

Date: 
Tuesday, March 17, 2020

Due to the current and rapidly evolving situation regarding the COVID19 pandemic Rochford District Council has taken the difficult decision to postpone its planned upcoming events: Discover 2020: 200 years of HMS Beagle (30th and 31st May); Wild Woods Day (18 July) and the Rochford District Awards (15 May). It is proposed that these can be rescheduled for later in the year.

In addition, we will not be taking bookings for appointments to view the Dutch cottage, in Rayleigh, until further notice.

Rochford District Council’s Leader, Cllr Mike Steptoe, said: “ Rochford District Council takes its responsibilities to its staff, residents and members of the public very seriously and whilst this has been an extremely difficult decision to make, I believe it is the right one in the circumstances.

“We will be immediately making plans to host these events later on in 2020 and I look forward to announcing new dates very soon.”
