In the light of the current uncertainties caused by the continuing Coronavirus crisis the Mersea Island Lions Committee have voted to cancel this year’s Summer Show. The show, due to take place on Saturday 8th August, is one of our biggest fundraising events and its cancellation will be a major blow to the organisation.
In view of the current situation the Committee have decided that ALL Lions events due to take place until the end of June 2020 are cancelled. This includes the Lions All-Terrain Running Race due to take place on Sunday 28th June. The viability of future events will be reviewed at the end of this period.
A fun new event for our 2020 Show will be a Circus Workshop provided by the Violet Streak’s Circus Company.
In the workshop guests will have a chance to try out and learn the following equipment:
- hula hoops
- devil sticks
- spinning plates
- circus ribbons
- juggling balls
Three members of the circus staff will actively teach circus skills to anyone wishing to learn.
