31st AUGUST CANCELLATION NOTICE - PLEASE READ CAREFULLY
The Abingdon Air & Country Show Committee have taken the difficult decision to cancel this year’s annual event, that had already been rescheduled from 17th May to 31st August 2020.
The committee chairperson Neil Porter, said; “We have carefully been monitoring the government guidance and with the partial lockdown currently still in place, there is clear indication that easing of restrictions to allow mass gatherings at outdoor events will take some time, it will no longer be possible to guarantee safety during such times for the event to go ahead”.
Neil added “Cancelling the event is a big decision for the entire committee, after many months of planning that starts from the previous September. Once the government declared the COVID-19 Pandemic, we rightfully ceased planning around early March for the May event and it was hoped that we could postpone and reschedule for 31st August. However, with the guidance on social distancing and uncertainty of the time period that the restrictions will stay in place, and above all trying to add in extra safety measures to ensure the safety of all those attending a late August show, it was deemed to be unviable to do. We take pride in ensuring everyone's safety involved including visitors, exhibitors, traders, volunteers and all the participants involved.”
