Wings 2020 - Wings 2020 Postponement announcement
The following announcement was made by WINGS 2020 on the 12 March at 7pm.
Following extensive discussions between the WINGS Governance Group, and the County Executives of Berkshire Scouts and Girlguiding Royal Berkshire, the difficult decision has been taken to postpone WINGS 2020 until 2021. At the time of writing there remains no clear guidance from the UK government and it’s uncertain as to the extent that Coronavirus will impact events such as WINGS, but we feel it is critical for us to focus on the potential risks to the safety of those attending and importantly also limit the financial impact to units.
We are pleased to say that we have already secured Windsor Great Park for the week of July 24-31 2021 and our suppliers for entertainment and programme are also joining us, so while we’re sad not to be delivering the jamboree this year, we’re excited for the great event that we have planned for next year.
Units wishing to join us in Windsor Great Park next year do not need to take any immediate action, the price will remain the same for you and the full payments made so far will carry over or we can release funds (minus a deposit) to help with cashflow if you prefer. For units who are unable to attend in 2021, then we will work with you to provide a refund of the amount paid to date minus £20 per person. Please let us know your preference by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org and our volunteer team will be working hard over the coming weeks and months to process the requests as quickly as possible (when contacting us, please just state your preference and do not include any bank account details in your email, we will process this with you directly).
We would like to say a huge thank you for the continued support and enthusiasm we receive from the fantastic WINGS volunteers and the leaders of units - you have and continue to be vital in helping us to deliver an amazing jamboree in 2021.
