It is with great regret that a decision has been made to cancel this year's Classic & Custom Car Show on August Bank Holiday Monday.
Looking at advice on the Covid 19 virus, although it is in decline, we do feel several factors have to be taken on if the show could go ahead.
Large gatherings have not been agreed at least up until July.
Social distancing will be near impossible for show staff, entrants and public.
Marshals and helpers will be in short supply, most are at high risk category, and have said that cash handling could not be done.
The Event Management Plan has certain criteria to meet, this could not be guaranteed, such as first aid and putting emergency services under more pressure, so would have to be amended and approved again by Rother District Council.
We have taken this early step before the large influx of car and trade entrants start arriving. Also, this is the time we must start ordering gazebos, toilets, plaques etc.
These are the reasons we have concluded to cancel the show at this time.
After a fantastic show last year, it is disappointing this has happened so let's make the 2021 show the best ever.
