Rescue Day 2021 cancelled

by | 15 April 2021 | Community Event, Gainsborough

It is with regret that Rescue Day 2021, which was due to be held on Saturday 10th July at 7 Lakes Country Park, Crowle, has been cancelled.  The Government’s four-step roadmap to ease restrictions across England and provide a route back to a more normal way of life, stage four, which allows the return of larger events, is due to take place no earlier than 21st June 2021. However, several of the event’s organisers are employed by our emergency and health services and along with other stakeholders, who support the planning and delivery of Rescue Day, remain under extreme pressure at this time. Therefore, regrettably a joint decision has been taken to cancel this year’s event.
Chris Long, Chair of the Rescue Day Society, said: “The team and I are hugely disappointed that we will not be able to bring Rescue Day to you again this year. Cancelling the event is one of the hardest decisions to make, however it has been a tough year for all of those involved with the event. We wish to thank our hosts 7 Lakes Country Park and all our organisers, officials, volunteers, exhibitors and their families for their continued support during these unprecedented times.”
Rescue Day remains committed to promoting the great work of our emergency and voluntary services and raising money for charities and good causes. It has funded many lifesaving public defibrillators and equipment which have been placed in local communities.
While visitors and exhibitors will be sad to hear that this year’s event has been cancelled once again, the organisers are pleased to let you know that Rescue Day will hopefully return next year on Saturday 9th July 2022 and they look forward to welcoming you all back very soon.
