The annual Safer Gosport Community Day did not take place on April 25th 2020 and the national lockdown early in 2021 resulted in the event being postponed.
During the early stages of the pandemic, Councillor John Beavis expressed his gratitude to those who continued to provide frontline services during such difficult circumstances:

Safer Gosport Community Day 2019
Even the arrival of Storm Hannah couldn’t stop hundreds of residents turning out to vote for the YOUdecide finalists at the Safer Gosport Community Day, Saturday 27th April 2019.
In addition to the voting, residents enjoyed meeting a whole host of volunteers including GAFIRS, SERV Wessex, South Central Ambulance Service, HIOWAA and HM Coastguard. Paw Patrol’s Chase also made an appearance too much to the delight of local youngsters.
Following a tense wait on the day, the results were announced for the winners of the 2019 YOUdecide vote with the projects by Motiv8 and Loud & Proud successfully being funded. Oarsome Chance received the remainder of the £10,000 towards their project and you can find more information about the process on the Youth YOUdecide page.
