Following long consideration, it was with the support of stakeholders, suppliers and Tendring District Council that Octopus Ahoy! (originally due for launch on 4th July 2020) was postponed until the summer of 2021.
This decision was made in line with COVID-19 guidance, for the safety of the public and everyone involved with the launch and running of the project. It was felt that the Octopus Ahoy! would better serve its sponsors and the local community in a time when schools, sponsors and the public can take part fully and – most importantly – safely, in its best possible form.

We look forward to delivering this fun, free activity in the summer of 2021 with all relevant safety and social distancing considerations. Watch this space – and keep an eye on our website and social media channels for updates!
