April and May

No events were held during April and May because of the lockdown.
Manning's Pit was busier than ever before as people used it for exercise.

Samantha Higgins made us a large number of face masks which we sold to raise money for our campaign.


All the remaining Events for March were cancelled because of the Coronavirus. 
The Auction at which Manning's Pit was to be sold was held on April 1st, but the entry for Manning's Pit had the word postponed written against it.
