Show is Still Planned to Go Ahead (for now at least)
As organisers of the Sleaford Classic Car and Motorcycle Show our primary concerns are as always, for the health and welfare of show entrants, visitors and helpers at all times.
The current Coronavirus outbreak has, on Government advice, led to the cancellation of many events planned to take place in the near future, and at present we find ourselves in a virtual “lockdown” Although the advice given is unlikely to change for the better in the next few weeks we will be doing our utmost to keep abreast of advice regarding events, such as ours, that are due to take place towards the end of the summer.
As our event is scheduled for early September, and given the ever-changing situation, we feel it is still far too soon to take a final decision to go ahead as planned or to cancel the show this year. Therefore, at present, we will continue to as best we can to make the necessary preparations for the show to take place as intended. At the same time, we are also be giving consideration to contingency plans should Government advice require us to, for example, put special measures in place in order for the show to happen or in the worst case scenario, cancel the event at short notice.
If you are considering supporting our show by entering your vehicle or as a trader, sponsor or advertiser, we would urge you to send in your entry and sponsorship forms as soon as possible, to help us in our preparations for the event to take place as normal. Should future Government advice result in a decision to cancel the show, we will, as part of our contingency planning, ensure that options are available so that no one is “out of pocket” as far as entry fees are concerned.
We very much hope that we will be able to go ahead with our show as planned to provide, a much needed, sense of normality in what has already become a difficult spring and early summer for many. We can only keep our fingers crossed that mid to late summer brings better news and we can all get back to, something like, our normal routines.
