We have made the difficult decision to cancel the Pendle Pub Walk 2020
We were hoping that we would be able to put on the event after postponing to August, however the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic mean it isn’t possible. It would be irresponsible of us to stage the event, as we cannot adhere to government guidelines, and crucially, do not want to impact our local NHS.
As things stand, and even as the situation improves, it isn’t going to be possible to meet requirements with any certainty. So, with just under two months to go we have concluded that the best course of action is to cancel, as we cannot ensure the safety of organisers/helpers, official venue staff, walkers or local residents.
We haven’t taken this decision lightly. The Pendle Pub Walk raises a huge amount of income for Pendleside Hospice and local Rotary Club charities, as well as supporting our local economy. It is a very important day in our calendar which thousands of people look forward to each year. We know how disappointing this is, but we’re sure everyone will understand why this decision has been made.
We hope to be able to host the Pendle Pub Walk again next year, all being well, on Saturday 19th June. All those registered have been contacted and informed that their registration will automatically roll over to next year. If you have any queries please send us a direct message or contact Sammi, head of events at Pendleside, on 01282 440128.
Thank you for your patience and understanding.
