It is with great regret that we have had to take thedifficult decision to cancel the Charities Fete which was due to be atGovernment House tomorrow (Saturday) afternoon. The weather forecast iscurrently for heavy rain through much of the day, and some charities andentertainment had already cancelled. We know that many charities havebeen working hard to prepare for this Fete – the first time that such an eventwas due to be held in the grounds of Government House.
We are extremelygrateful to His Excellency and Lady Corder for inviting the Association ofGuernsey Charities to host an event for the benefit of a large number of localorganisations, and we know that many charities had been looking forward to the opportunity. We also thank all of the people who devoted significant time to planning andpreparation, and those who offered to provide entertainment andrefreshments.
Sadly the weather is outside of our control but, hopefully,we might be able to go ahead with something similar in the future.
