2020 Merredin show - cancelled
Due to increased public concern and to protect the health of all involved in the Merredin Show, and in response to the Prime Minister’s direction that any organised mass gathering over 500 people should be cancelled, we are cancelling the 2020 Merredin Show.
It is obviously disappointing that there is a need to cancel the Show as it is the first time in our 100 year history that there has been a need to do so. It is not only our disappointment, but it carries through to everyone involved and the general public who have always supported us so well.
The safety and well-being of everyone, is our priority.
We will be in touch with Entertainers, Exhibitors, sponsors etc plus others who were to be involved to advise of this decision and work with them to obtain the best outcome for all.
Please bear with us as it is by no means a small task to cancel this event at such short notice.
This is obviously having a huge financial impact on our organisation as we have already expended a very large amount of money, with no means of getting it back by actually running the event.
One of the only ways to get an income to help cover our costs at the moment is to sell all the tickets in our raffle. $25 gives you a chance in winning your share of the $8,000 prize money. Call the Merredin Community Resource Centre on 9041 1041 to purchase one, or call and see them at 110 Barrack Street in Merredin.
We are also gratefully taking any donations at this time to assist in covering the financial loss that we are left with. There is no donation too large or too small. Having said that, we also understand that there are a number of organisations that are faced with the same as we are and we would not like to see anyone face their own financial loss by donating to us.
I personally thank each and every one on our committee plus the Merredin Community Resource Centre for the incredible job they have done to get this event to the point they have. It was going to be great, as it is our goal to make each event better and better than the previous one.
In the hope that the COVID-19 pandemic will be a thing of the past in 2021, we are already planning next year’s Merredin Show.
