The Town Council is organizing a public draw to allocate free tickets for members of the public to attend the service. This draw is not operated on a first come first served basis. We can only accept one entry per houshold or support bubble. Entries are placed in a draw that is chosen randomly and the successful entries are allocated tickets. One ticket entitles the person named below to bring up to an additional five members of their household or support bubble*** (including babes in arms, children and adults) who do not need to socially distance from each other.
