Kenilworth Lions regret to announce the cancellation of the Carols at the Abbey event for this year. The District Council, as owners of the Abbey Fields, has advised us that the ground conditions and the expected further rain mean that running the event is not viable for safety reasons, and also because of possible damage to amenities in the Park. In conjunction with WDC we have examined alternative options, but none are viable.
We are very sorry to have to cancel this traditional free Christmas event, and thank the residents of Kenilworth and District for their understanding and support over the this and previous years.
At the moment there are no plans to cancel the Duck Race, which will take place as usual on Boxing Day, starting at 12.00 at the Ford and finishing at the Swimming Pool in Abbey Fields. The weather forecast by then looks encouraging, and we are hopeful that ground conditions in that part of the Park will be acceptable for the event.
Any further situation updates will be posted here on our website and on our Facebook and Twitter pages.
All at Kenilworth Lions wish you a Happy and Peaceful Christmas and New Year.
