September show called off

LANGHOLM Show will not go ahead next month due to Covid-19 guidelines.

The committee met last week to make the final decision on whether or not to proceed with a scaled back version of the agricultural event, which always takes place on the Castleholm on the last Saturday of September.

Chairwoman Michelle Jardine, pictured with some of the committee, said: “We held off cancelling the show with the hope of putting on some sort of show, or event of some sort, for the community.

“However, after further discussion and the latest outbreaks of Covid, we came to the decision to cancel the 2020 cattle show in the best interests of the community.”

She will continue at the helm next year and added: “Hopefully we can concentrate on the 2021 show and make it something for everyone to look forward to.

“I would just like to say thank you to the committee for their support and we hope everyone stays safe and see you all next year!”
