AN ANNUAL Christmas eve event in Ringwood which was first held in the 1950s has been cancelled for the second year running.

The Rotary Club of Ringwood said it was regrettable that Christmas Eve in the Market Place was unable to go ahead as the spread of the Omicron variant increases.

The event, between 6pm and 8pm, gives children the chance to give presents to Father Christmas, which are then passed to those less fortunate. Carols were also due to be sung.

The event will not be held for the second year in a row due to the panndemic Photo credit: Club of Ringwood Rotary (53699979)

A spokesperson for the club said: "Christmas Eve in the Market Place in Ringwood is a very special time.

"Unfortunately the event has had to be cancelled again this year.

"This is due to government regulations of Plan B imposed on us with regard to large crowds."

The club has arranged drop-off points to allow presents to still be donated. These can be taken to The London Tavern in Poulner, Greyfriars Community Centre and the Gateway council offices.
