KENILWORTH Lions’ annual Christmas event Carols at the Abbey has been cancelled.
Ground conditions and further rain mean the Abbey Fields event on Saturday (December 21) will not go ahead due to safety concerns.
The charity team says they must ‘reluctantly agree’ with the decision.
A spokeperson added: “We are very sorry to have to cancel this traditional free Christmas event, and thank the residents of Kenilworth and district for their understanding and support over this and previous years.
“At the moment there are no plans to cancel the duck race, which will take place as usual on boxing day, starting at 12pm at the ford and finishing at the swimming pool in Abbey Fields. The weather forecast by then looks encouraging, and we are hopeful that the level of the brook and the ground conditions in that part of the park will be acceptable for the event.
“All at Kenilworth Lions wish you a happy and peaceful Christmas and new year.”
