SOCIETY ALREADY PLANNING FOR THE 2021 NANTWICH SHOW

 

NANTWICH Agricultural Society has announced plans to stage next year's popular Nantwich Show on Saturday, July 24 - rather than in the middle of the week as previously.

   It will be a one-day event as the International Cheese and Dairy Awards will no longer be hosted by The Nantwich Show but separately by IDCA Awards Ltd. A date for The Awards will be announced in due course.

   A statement from Nantwich Agricultural Society says: "This move to a weekend format is to encourage all sectors of the local community to attend and support this established event.

   "A Saturday show will be the first weekend show in 120 years and will facilitate a day out for all the family. It promises to deliver an action-packed line up of attractions and fun for everyone."

   The Chairman of Nantwich Agricultural Show, Michael-John Parkin, said: "The aim is to offer our local communities a welcome focus during a time of recovery for us all. Our residents and businesses have always supported us well and we urge them to continue to do so and aid the sustainability of The Nantwich Show and local economy.’’

   The show has not been held for two years due to adverse weather conditions in 2019 and Covid-19 in 2020.

   The show will still be staged on the show ground at Dorfold Hall and will be bigger and better than ever; crammed with local trade stands, livestock, country pursuits displays, a cookery theatre, a creative craft pavilion, the hugely popular food hall and much more!

   Mr Parkin said: "The decision for the two shows to part ways after an association of 120 years has been a difficult one but will provide new opportunities for growth, diversification, and sustainability for both events.

   “We would like to thank the Awards and the committee for their support over the years. Moving forward we will be retaining our historical links with them by planning attractions at each event.

   "The Chairman of the Nantwich Agricultural Society will still be involved with the Awards as an Agricultural Ambassador. We wish the International Cheese and Dairy Awards every success for the future.”

Beam Heath Trust caNcels dividend distribution because of

COVID-19 PANDEMIC

A STATEMENT from the Chairman of the Beam Heath Trust Chairman, Kevin Hammersley, says:

    Due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic and the possibility of a further wave in the autumn, the Trustees of The Beam Heath have reluctantly decided that it has become impossible to carry out safely the Distribution payment for 2020.

    Whilst the infection rate is somewhat less than when the initial decision was made, there is no certainty that it will reduce sufficiently to be without risk to recipients and Beam Heath Trust Officials.

    Various ways in which the distribution could have been implemented have been investigated, but all proposals were not without the possibility of some exposure to the virus.

    Safety is the overriding factor and as this could not be guaranteed the decision to cancel became inevitable. Discussions will take place as soon as it is practical to decide on the best way to proceed in 2021.

NANTWICH SHOW AND INTERNATIONAL CHEESE AWARDS CANCELLED FOR A SECOND YEAR - DUE TO COVID-19 PANDEMIC

IN A statement issued on April 2, Michael-John Parkin, the Chairman of Nantwich Show Agricultural Society, said: ‘’Due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, we have taken the sad but sensible decision to cancel The Nantwich Show and International Cheese Awards on July 29.

   "As this national crisis escalates day by day, we feel we cannot safely run the show in 2020. We are extremely sorry to have to announce this news and appreciate that this will disappoint everyone who loves the show as much as we do.

   "The Nantwich Show began in 1897 and has grown to become the biggest one-day agricultural show and host to the world’s largest cheese awards.

   "The show is the main event for our charity, Nantwich Agricultural Society, and also brings thousands of pounds to the local economy of Nantwich and surrounding area. We hope the public will continue to support us in 2021."
