A spokesperson from Unlocking Warwick said: "Regretfully the Town Council’s volunteers have had to call off their community events for the foreseeable future because of the Covid-19 coronavirus epidemic.

"The government advice is for everyone to reduce social contacts to a minimum, especially those involving the over-70s and vulnerable groups, who will be asked to stay at home.

"We are sorry to disappoint residents and visitors who enjoy our events, and we hope everyone will take extra care and stay clear of the virus."
