We're looking to have a Winter Moot from the 15-22nd Feb 2021 so put that date in your diaries.

Currently we're discussing with the estate about how it would work given the current Covid distancing, cleaning etc necessities. I think it's highly likely that we'll nail something down that allows us to have an event that works for them and us as a group. It's highly likely that we'll have multiple areas, workshops and Demo's with limited people so we'll need to rotate smaller groups through activities, keep our distance round the fire, maybe even have a couple of fires for socialising around etc etc.

I'll inform you as soon as it's set in stone and we'll get booking available.

Thanks all, hopefully we'll see you soon!!

I'm still trying to figure out how this will working the current situation, there's a lot of unknowns and changes that are going to happen between now and Feb.

I know that everyone that comes will be accommodating to how we have to organise and run things.

I'm due a call with the estate and I'll make double sure that they're happy for us to plan for the event to go ahead, I want to make sure that we've got plenty of dry firewood! The costs are going to be more than last year so people should prepare for that as well. I will probably incorporate the food costs in with the tickets so that there's less hassle with passing a donation tub around, it worked but I think simplification for this coming year is a must.

I know that Wayne and Beth, Andy and Shawn are preparing for the Winter Moot AKA Festival outdoor Cookery! lots of exciting stuff.

Thanks all for the support and encouragement...

I'm hoping that the Welsh government remove travel restrictions in time for this but I have a nasty feeling England will be in lockdown from January to March. Fingers crossed it's not the case

Sorry to disappoint you all but I'm afraid we're canceling the Winter Moot, I should have posted this up yesterday morning or even before that but procrastinated, my apology for that.

The decision hasn't been made lightly and we apologise for any disappointment. Due to the situation in the UK and the difficulty it causes on the estate at the moment it's not doable.

We aim to have another Winter Moot as soon as we can, for now, we will be focusing on the Summer Moot in the hope that it can go ahead with it and we look forward to seeing you all there.

If the newly announced vaccine significantly changes the viability of running the Moot we'll jump at the chance to put it on and we'll get the information out as soon as we can.

Thanks all
Tony

I just need to get out of this house. Everyone here currently has COVID except me!
