Hythe Summer Market 2020 – an great family focused summer event with social distancing
Working to a new normal is a learning curve that most of us will have to undertake to some degree. Running events with social distancing as an essential requirement means that operators such as Zoom have to learn quickly and put measures into place that will provide for safe, well managed environment.
The days of live bands, crowded hospitality areas and the free mixing of folk at festivals such as our Hythe Food and Drink seem like freedom lost, but there is another way forward and I hope that we have gone a considerable way to proving this with our Summer Market Holman’s Field in Hythe this weekend.
I am looking out at folk having a good time while maintaining their obligation to protect the vulnerable through social distancing. The stall holders are doing their bit with screens, masks, gels and clear signage, our stewards and security staff are doing a great job in gently guiding people to the measures that we have put in place and the sunshine is reminding us how wonderful the British Summer can be.
Thanks everyone for working together to make this a safe and fun event. We hope that this is the acceptable alternative until we find the way to kick covid 19 into the past and retake the full freedoms that we cherish.
