Flashback to Love Lennox in 2014 – photo supplied.

Normally the people of Lennox Head would be gearing up for their biggest day of the year just about now, but the 2020 Love Lennox Festival has been postponed due to COVID-19.

Organisers at the Lennox Head Chamber of Commerce announced on social media that they had to postpone the event in the interests of public safety, with large groups still limited by government rules.

Their statement says, ‘We know this will be a disappointment to our great partners on the event – sponsors, patrons and most of all, the local businesses that take stalls at the event.

‘We also know that during a time of economic challenges, the impact of not hosting the event in June is significant – but we simply can’t plan the event with any confidence.

‘Please be assured we will be continuing to look for the first opportunity to reschedule the event – hopefully later in the year – and bring our main street to life with thousands of patrons. We’ll keep you informed as we make decisions.’

Sadly, this means the famous Lennox Head Dog Show, which was also planned for June 13, will also be postponed.

The Love Lennox Festival organisers are asking people to stay healthy and support local business where it is safe to do so.
