A free family fun day at a Fleetville church has been cancelled in light of the coronavirus scare.

St Paul's Church, at the corner of Blandford Road and Hatfield Road, was due to throw open its doors from 10.30am to 3.30pm on Saturday offering a wide range of free family-friendly attractions.

The Community Day planned a non-stop programme of activities including junk recycling to a model train display, from a nail studio to a bouncy castle, from an art display and sushi making to all-age creation care activities including a neighbourhood litter pick.

However, the event has now been cancelled.

A spokesperson said: 'In light of the latest coronavirus advice both from the government and the Church of England, this event has now been cancelled. We apologise for any inconvenience but believe people will understand the decision.'
