North Wales police said a party was held on a street in Deeside on Saturday, describing it as a “bad idea” that should have been postponed until the coronavirus pandemic was brought under control.
But their reviews had mixed reviews when they posted about it on Facebook, North Wales Live reported.
Several locals said the party was made up of people in their own gardens.
In the message, the local North Flintshire force force said: “Residents of Deeside. The chocolate teapot. The motorcycle ashtray. The waterproof tea bag. All examples of bad ideas.
“Kind of like the” social distancing “party that a group of over 40 people held yesterday on the street in Sandycroft. Or the birthday party held on Dock Road.
“Let’s save the celebrations for when it’s all over. “
Several people responded to the message by criticizing those who participated in the celebrations.
But others said that social distancing had been observed, with participants staying in their own gardens while enjoying the party.
They also said that there were far fewer people involved than the police claimed.
One person said, “Everyone was in their garden … everyone was sensible and kept a distance from each other.
“You could hear it for miles. People dance in their gardens [it] was an hour of relief. ”
