Strawberry Fields Kite Festival
This is not the big Strawberry Fields Kite Festival announcement we had expected to make.
Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, we will not be holding the festival. I am sure this will not be a huge shock to people. We had planned on leaving this cancellation announcement until we could be more certain of the extent and duration of the pandemic, but Anne needs an operation, which has been indefinitely postponed.
We are making available a pattern for our kites on our website, so that these kites can be made at home. They are simple kites, but if you got one last year or in previous years, you will know how easy they are to make and to fly.
We are encouraging people to make these kites and get out with your children (or yourselves) and enjoy the upcoming fine weather. One thing that is known is that people share the virus by close contact. There is no need for close contact as you fly our kites.
So, make yourself a kite, and enjoy the fresh air and sunshine.
Next year we will see you at Strawberry Fields Kite Festival's 30th iteration.
Anne, Rick and Joan
