18 Mar Important update regarding the COVID-19
The last few weeks have been an anxious time for everyone, and things are changing at a rapid pace.
When the news broke in January about the COVID-19, I was travelling through Singapore and Malaysia. We rapidly had to change the way we were travelling and eating out, but still enjoying the fantastic food scene there.
I would never have thought that this would spread so quickly worldwide. There will be tough times ahead and being a big supporter of the Cambridge food scene, I have stayed positive and hoped to be still offering our award-winning tours throughout this crisis.
With a heavy heart, I have made the decision today to suspend touring until 1 May 2020. I will review closer to the time if we can start then again. It depends on the government’s recommendations. I am also urging everyone to please take the maximum precaution possible at this time by practising what the health authorities globally are recommending – social distancing and staying at home as much as possible.
Over the last 8 years, we have seen the positive and lasting effect that can happen when different people from all over the world connect around food. This simple notion has been at the core of what we do at the Cambridge Food Tour since the very first days.
It is great to see that the Cambridge food scene has reinvented itself over the last few days. Most of them do home deliveries now, which has been made possible by the flexible support of the government. Don’t forget to keep an eye out on our social media channels, where we will be posting updates about the Cambridge food scene.
If you have a booking with us before 1 May, I will contact you today. Hopefully, you can move the tour or event to a later day, alternatively, change it into a voucher or I can refund the booking.
Take care of yourself, be kind and support your community. We will get through this together! If you haven’t done so, buy some seeds and start gardening either at home or your allotment. Don’t have one? Get in touch as there are available plots at various locations in Cambridge.
