Before Leicester went back in to lockdown we had agreed for our judges to meet at a central location (socially distanced) on the 31stJuly and all contestants will connect via zoom on the day of the event. But now Leicesters back in lockdown this is not possible . So we will just have to carry on and do the whole event virtually ! If anything changes we will let everyone know” said organiser Angie Beasley .
