THIS year's Apex Park Play Day has been cancelled - meaning that it has been called off for the second year running.

Organisers of the Highbridge-based event hope that it will run next year, on Wednesday, August 3, 2022, and it will come back bigger and better.

The Play Day takes months of organisation to plan for the 5,000 children plus parent/carers who attend the free event, which has more than 50 activities set up for the children.

While Sedgemoor District Council provides some funding and staff time to help organise the Play Day, the main organising committee is run entirely by volunteers, who give up countless hours of time.

Organiser Rosie Pike said: “We rely heavily on a marvellous band of volunteers and activity holders, and weighing up the situation we do not feel that we can ask them to plan for a day which may not go ahead.

"It is a really difficult decision to make and I know that many families will be hugely disappointed, but we will be back!”
