ROC executive director Debra Green issued a statement:
The latest government statement of COVID-19 predicts that the outbreak will peak in the UK towards the end of March. This will coincide with the ROC event planned for 30 March.
Having discussed this with the Police and Crime Commissioners Office and the WCDA [Whitley Community Development Association], ROC and other partners have agreed that in the interests of public safety the postponement of this event is the best course of action.
We will continue to monitor the situation over the coming weeks and reschedule to a date in the future that is guided by government advice related to public gatherings.
