This year’s Wilmslow Show has been cancelled, as a result of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
Chairman Angela McPake said: “It is, with heavy heart, that we have decided to cancel this year’s Wilmslow Community Show.
“We had hoped to be able to carry on, mindful of how many small traders and charities rely on the exposure and sales the show gives them and the fact that, by July, we may all need something positive to look forward to.”
She explained: “Although the government are hoping that the worst of the coronavirus will be over by then, clearly we don’t know that will be the case or that people will want to be coming out to a large event. For that reason, we have taken the decision to cancel the 2020 Show.”
Next year’s show will be on the Sunday 4th Sunday and organisers hope it will be better than ever, and a celebration of community spirit.
Angela said: “Thinking ahead to next year, we would love help from people who may be stuck at home for the next weeks or months!”
1. The aim is to make the show a celebration of all that is great about Wilmslow and the surrounding area. If you have thoughts, let organisers know by emailing [email protected].
2. The show needs more bunting (because you can never have too much!) If you can – and you have scraps of material at home – please consider making some bunting for the show. Anyone who makes us a metre or more will get a free family pass for the Wilmslow Show 2021.
3. Organisers would love some new poster designs for the show, from any Wilmslow student (age 16 or under). It needs to be in colour and A4. Any design that is used will receive a prize, a family pass and their design on a range of merchandise.
