Sadly, coronavirus has put paid to many community events planned for spring and summer 2020, and West Hallam Well Dressing festival is no exception.  We as a committee are doing our bit to stay at home, protect the NHS and save lives, and encourage our partners in our event to do the same.  

We have looked at possible alternative dates later in the year, and while it remains uncertain whether large scale gatherings will take place in 2020 we have concluded that a Well Dressing in the autumn is probably too uncertain to start planning.

So, what we are exploring now is the possibility of joining with our friends on the Village Hall team to expand the excellent West Hallam Christmas Lights switch on event.  Clearly, this is a challenging time of year for well dressings, but many of the other highlights from our event may be possible in December.  Your usual point of contact for Well Dressings will be in touch to see if you can contribute towards this radically different event plan

Please check in with us from time to time to see how Plan B is progressing, and in the meantime, keep cheerful and positive.
