Disappointment as Moulton Chapel Flower Parade is cancelled

Disappointed villagers have been forced to cancel a popular parade for the second year running.

The people behind Moulton Chapel Flower Parade have made the difficult decision to postpone this year's event due to the coronavirus pandemic.

While lockdown has eased earlier this week, current restrictions continue to prevent large gatherings of people.

A statement from the organising committee says: "We are all disappointed as this will be the second year and our Tulip Queen, Princesses and Prince were all hopeful that it would go ahead."

Villagers were due to celebrate the parade's 40th anniversary in May last year but as it was due to take place during the first part of the lockdown.

Moulton Chapel Flower Parade, which is the only one of its kind held in the area since the main event in Spalding was cancelled in 2013, attracts visitors from all over to watch floats process through the village.

The procession is the culmination of a year of hard work for organisers, who usually put on a range of fundraising events.
