The Rotary Club made the difficult decision last night to CANCEL the Classic Car Show planned for Sunday September 19th.
A spokesperson said "We had left it as late as we could in the hopes that the announcement by Welsh Government on the easing of restrictions would make it possible for the local Vale Council to give us a clear signal that the show could go ahead as usual. But unfortunately, they were as yet unable to do that and it was impossible to wait any longer."
"We were at the point where we had to start spending serious money if the show were to go ahead, and we could not risk the financial loss if the requirements imposed made it impractical."
With uncertainty around things such as track and trace, social distancing and mask wearing - organisers say they simply didn't have the resource to implement these, should they be required.
"We apologise to everyone who has registered a car or motorcycle in the expectation that the show would go ahead and assure you of our intent to revert to the normal date next year and hold the show as usual on Bank Holiday Monday 30th May 2022."
