Show cancellation 2021
It is regrettable that the committee has taken the decision to cancel this year’s 2021 show due to the ongoing COVID situation. After discussions with our landlords it was felt that social distancing could not be policed properly and that restrictions may not have been fully lifted.
After such a torrid couple of years for the show, we have lost a great amount of money, we would find it hard to put on a show this year as we would have to rely so much on our sponsors who also have a grim year too.
We will be concentrating on fund raising events to help us preserve our society.
On a good note the Horticultural committee will hopefully put on a scaled down show. This will once again be held in Hawkshead Church. Please look at the website later for more information.
All trade stands will be offered a full refund in due course.
Thanks for your continued support and understanding.
