The Glendale Show at Wooler

Official Statement issued by Glendale Agricultural Society

Friday 29th January 2021, 13:00 It is with very heavy hearts that the Chairman Andrew Walton and the Board of Trustees of Glendale Agricultural Society have made the difficult decision to cancel the Children's Countryside Day and Glendale Show which were scheduled to take place on Thursday 10th June and Monday 30th August 2021. We are sure you will understand that this decision has not been taken lightly. The current situation with Covid-19 and the uncertainty of how long it will take to get back to some form of 'normality' has made it impossible to run this year's events. Whilst this news is disappointing for everyone, we are sure that you would agree that the health, safety and wellbeing of our, traders, competitors, members, sponsors, volunteers, visitors and local community is of paramount importance. Staffing arrangements are as follows: Rebecca is currently furloughed and Rachael is working 3hrs per week to correlate the year end and to look towards future funding and engagement opportunities, whilst furloughed for the remainder of her contract. This helps the Trustees protect the Society and keep them employed longer during these uncertain times. Helen is currently self-employed and homeworking, 6 hours per fortnight to keep the office running for which we are extremely grateful. The official cancellation statement will soon be published on our Website and Social Media channels, however we wanted to let you know the situation before we put it in the public domain. Your support is vital to the survival of the Glendale Agricultural Society and we would like to express our gratitude to each and everyone of you for your continued support during these unprecedented times. Please stay safe and our thoughts go out to everyone who is currently, and has been affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. The Trustees of Glendale Agricultural Society
