The Heathfield Show has now been cancelled for 2021 because of Covid-19.
Members who were kind enough to join in 2020 will have their membership automatically renewed, free of charge, for 2021. This gesture is to show appreciation for your loyal support of the Show even though none was held in 2020. You will be eligible to receive all the usual benefits during 2021, although of course there will be no Show!
Everybody realises what a big decision to cancel a second consecutive show is, but everybody is in agreement that the responsibility for the health of all our visitors, exhibitors, guests, trade stand holders, volunteers, stewards and committee members has to be the main priority. Combining this with the financial health of the Society is also important.
Taking both these factors into consideration with the necessity of preserving the Society assets for future Shows it seems sensible to decide to cancel sooner, rather than later.
If you would like to make a donation to the Friends of Heathfield Agricultural Show, to help the Show through this difficult financial period, please send your donation (by cheque to save incurring banking costs) direct to our Membership Secretary, Pedlars, Swife Lane, Broad Oak, Heathfield, TN21 8UU. Cheques should be made payable to the Heathfield Show.
