Messy Madness postponed until July

13th June 2019

We are sorry to inform you that we have had to postpone this Saturday’s Messy Madness event at Churchfields Farm until Saturday, 27th July 2019.

This is due to persistent rain causing the ground to become waterlogged to the extent it would pose significant risk of injury to participants. It is also impossible for vehicles, which are necessary to the event, to access the grounds.

As you can imagine, re-arranging an event of this scale is not an easy task – however, our suppliers and partners are all able to help us host the event on the new date in July, at Churchfields Farm.

We are extremely disappointed to be unable to welcome all those signed-up for Messy Madness this weekend. We would like to apologise for this postponement and any inconvenience it may cause.

Unfortunately, the circumstances are beyond our control – but we plan to make Messy Madness event in July just as spectacular!

If you have signed up for Messy Madness and would like more information regarding refunds and what happens next, please see our FAQs.

Once again, we apologise for any inconvenience caused – but hope to see everyone taking part in July for a fantastic day of Messy Madness.

During this challenging time, we are doing our utmost to continue caring for the patients and loved ones who need us most.

The way we work has been adapted, with many of our services delivered remotely – such as over the phone, or by video call. And we are working closely with other health care professionals in Worcestershire to share knowledge and expertise at this time.
