"Following the cancellation of last
year’s festival we were initially
hopeful that the pandemic would not
see the festival cancelled for a
second year. However, due to the
uncertainty that remains around the
re-opening of the licensed trade,

NANTWICH FOOD FESTIVAL
FOR the second year in a row the Nantwich Food Festival, planned for
September, is not going ahead. The organising committee had said
they would make a decision by Easter about how the festival could be
staged, but they have
agreed that it could not take place.
A spokesman said: "It is with great sadness that the
committee have decided to cancel this year's festival."
They added that the decision was not taken lightly and
was based on concerns regarding health and safety and "the
uncertainty surrounding the holding of large scale public events
"Planning for the festival begins many months in
advance and with the lack of clarity surrounding what restrictions
could be in place in the future, the committee do not believe it
would be viable to hold an event this year.
“They appreciate the support they have received from
volunteers, exhibitors, sponsors and the local council, and are
aware of the local community’s desire for a return to normality, but
it was felt that it would not be possible to offer an event that
would parallel the success of previous festivals."
The committee will now focus on planning the 2022
event which will be the 21st.
CIVIC HALL IS TOWN'S VENUE FOR COVID-19
NANTWICH Civic Hall is the venue of the
Covid-19 vaccinations in Nantwich in a service run by Nantwich and
Rural Primary Care Network staff.
Patients with an appointment for
vaccination can gain access to the hall by the side entrance facing
the Civic Hall car park. That is, up the ramp where a member of the
team is present to guide patients into the hall. There is a one-way
system in operation in the hall and so the front door of the hall on
Market street is exit only.
As is the national norm, the
vaccinations are by appointment only. It is not possible to turn up
and hope to be vaccinated. The appointments are administered
in a timetable for different priority categories of patients.
Appointments to attend the vaccinations are being sent out
by the surgeries. They should not be contacted for an appointment.
The Care Network is made up of five
local GPs' practices – Audlem Medical
Practice, Kiltearn Medical Centre,
Nantwich Health Centre, Tudor
Surgery and Wrenbury Medical Centre.
