Indoor Picnic ….Let’s Get Together Again

After months of living with Covid restrictions there’s a chance for people in the Abbots Morton Community to get together at last.

It’s an “Indoor Picnic” on Sunday June 27th in the village hall. The doors open at 12noon and will run through until about 4pm.

Anyone who wants to come is asked to bring their own food and drink and crockery and cutlery. You’ll be able to sit socially distanced at tables laid out in and (with good weather) outside the hall.

Everyone is welcome but there will be a limit of 50 people on the expectation that social distancing may still be required and it will be necessary to reserve your places.

If you know you are coming, please reserve your seat as soon as you can by calling  Lynne Pemberton on 01386 792549 or by e-mail at

The picnic is for anyone in our community. It’s organised by St Peter’s church which normally holds a fundraising Flower Festival Lunch on the last weekend in June. But against a background of Covid anxiety for many people, they decided not to have the traditional buffet table.

It’s not a church fund raiser and entry is free. Do feel welcome to get together with those you may not have seen for ages.

Walk-In Wednesday…starts 7th July. Do Drop in

To give further opportunities to meet together after months of Covid lockdown, the village hall is starting weekly drop- in sessions on Wednesday mornings.

The first Walk-in Wednesday will be on July 7th from 10am to 1pm. Just drop in and enjoy a cup of tea or coffee and a cake and a biscuit.

There’s no entry fee… just come and chat and meet others in person. Don’t feel lonely, come and say hello on Walk-In Wednesday.
