Please note that the Barton under Needwood Steam Rally and Family Festival is cancelled. We took the decision back in February and announced it on FB, but we are still receiving enquiries and applications. Please share this post if you can. The event is planned for next year, 17th and 18th July.
It is with huge regret, that, with the most recent advice about COVID-19 and public events, we find ourselves in a situation beyond our control and we have taken the decision to CANCEL the event this year.
This decision has not been taken lightly or easily- we were hoping it would not happen. However, with the Government’s most recent announcements about self-distancing, self-isolation and pressures on the emergency services, we feel we have no option. The health and safety of our volunteers, exhibitors, traders and visitors must come first.
As you are aware, our event raises money for the Midlands Air Ambulance and we are concerned that we will not be the only event that supports them, to be cancelled. We feel strongly that this charity provides an invaluable service, which any one of us could need at any time, so they need all the money they can get. If you feel able to make a donation to them, no matter how small, please use the link below to find out how you can donate or send your donation to Midlands Air Ambulance Charity, Hawthorn House, Dudley Rd, Brierley Hill, Stourbridge, DY98BQ, mentioning our event and making your cheque payable to Midlands Air Ambulance Charity .
We look forward to the future when all of this becomes history and we hope to see you all at next year’s event on 17th & 18th July 2021
In the meantime, stay healthy and safe.
From the Committee
