An update on the Big Cliff Weekend

An update on the upcoming Big Cliff Weekend event at Cliff College.

Dear friends,

It is with sadness that I announce we will not be going ahead with the Big Cliff Weekend on 24-25 July. While we recognise that the government plans to lift its events restrictions before this date, and while we have made every effort to safely organise this event, we do not think it wise or responsible to host this gathering while COVID infections are rising across the country. We had held off cancelling in the hope that this picture would change before 24 July, but this now seems unlikely and we have concluded that we cannot in good conscience hold an event of this nature, even with all the precautions and safeguards we have in place.

All tickets and accommodation bookings are fully refundable. For those of you who would like to cancel your event tickets but keep your accommodation or camping bookings and take this opportunity to visit and enjoy the Peak District, you are very welcome to do this. Our bed & breakfast accommodation and/or camping facilities will be available for you to use for the length of your original booking. Cliff College is a COVID-secure facility and we are confident that existing individual and family bookings for B&B and camping can be accommodated safely at our site. For all refunds and related queries, please contact Michelle at m.foulkes@cliffcollege.ac.uk.

Again, I am sorry to announce this, and we know that it will cause disappointment for those of you who were looking forward to joining us over 24-25 July. We look forward to the time when we can safely gather together on the Cliff College site again – until then, please continue to pray for us as we pray for you.
