It is with great sorrow that we must announce the cancellation of the Annual Tweed Ride, originally scheduled for harvest time in the Year of Our Lord 2020. Due to ye olde plague “COVID-19”, the Royal Physician to Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, Dr. Bonnie Henry, has decreed that citizens of British Columbia may not gather in large numbers for events. Last year the event experienced a most rousing success with throngs of gentle-folk and gentry alike. Lest we be thought of as a rabble of peasants and have the constables brought up on us, we fear we must cancel the festivities this year. We humbly ask that you, our loyal patrons, understand our reasonings. The cancellation of this event is no excuse to forego tweed though, so we take this opportunity to bring your attention to the most fashionable tweed accessory of the age: the humble face mask.
Heralds will be sent forth in due course to announce next year’s Tweed Ride. Messages will be nailed to the community notice board in the Hamlet of Facebook.
May you stay healthy and safe, and we look forward to raising our finest bone china teacups with you anon.
