Dalston Show 2021 - Cancelled
Once again the Trustees of Dalston Show have had the unenviable task of deciding whether it is appropriate to stage our event on the 14th August 2021.
All indications point towards a continuing improvement in Covid 19 infection rates and the likely lifting of restrictions as we head towards the summer. However there remains considerable uncertainty regarding what the situation might be for larger events in August. Trying to predict and plan for these uncertainties, particularly as a committee of volunteers, has proven difficult.
Whilst we have remained extremely enthusiastic towards proceeding with arrangements, the risks remain high, not only in regard to the Covid infection rate but the financial implications upon our Society should we be unable to hold an event or merely a Show with reduced capacity.
The conclusion has therefore been reached to cancel our Show forthwith, which we are sure will sadden all our supporters as indeed it does our Committee.
We can assure you that, all being well, we will return with a Show to be proud of on the 13th August 2022.
Thank you for your support as always.
Dalston Show Secretary
After over 40 years of dedicated service, our Secretary, Nick Utting has decided that 2021 will be his last and he is taking a well deserved retirement.
We are now on the search for someone new to help us run our show for years to come.
