Award-winning Birmingham LGBTQ+ social group Circle is set to host a special first birthday picnic at a yet-to-be-announced venue on Sunday 30 August (from 2pm).
A community enterprise promoting LGBTQ+ mental and physical health & wellbeing, Circle will be celebrating the special anniversary - albeit a month late due to Covid-19 - with a socially distanced picnic in the park.
The Circle’s Scott Gethings said: “We would have loved to hold our birthday party with you all, as we are super proud of what Circle has become and remain excited for the future.
“Miss Rona came along and spoiled many things, including us being able to see each other. However, as the government rolls back some of the lockdown measures and we move into the ‘new normal’, we feel now is an appropriate time to make a sensible start at Circle’s new normal and celebrate our first year in some form.
“For now we feel a socially distanced picnic in the park will allow everyone to gain the mental-health benefits of our event, whilst managing and ensuring everyone's physical-health needs at this time.”
