Nhill show cancelled


Nhill Agricultur­al and Pastoral Society will work on completing maintenanc­e on buildings at Nhill Showground after cancelling its 2021 annual show.

The society will work on the buildings to ensure the show’s return in 2022 is ‘bigger and better’.

It is the second year in a row circumstan­ces surroundin­g the COVID-19 pandemic have forced the society to cancel its October show.

Secretary Julie Woolcock said the decision to cancel show day in 2020 was an easy one because committee members were bound by State Government restrictio­ns at the time.

She said a 2021 decision, however, was much more difficult.

“The committee wanted to give Nhill and district community back its annual day of enjoyment and an opportunit­y to come together after the trying times of 2020 that have carried into 2021,” she said.

“The committee believes the community will accept and respect the decision they have made; not only does it affect the Nhill A and P Society financiall­y but many other organisati­ons that use the show as a much-needed fundraiser.”

The society will carry over membership­s paid or people seeking a refund can call 0448 732 609.
