Following advice from NSW Health, the committee of Murrumbateman Progress Association Inc has decided to cancel the 2020 Murrumbateman Field Days.
NSW Health advised that the current restrictions for an unseated event was a limit of 500 ticketed patrons. While this limit may increase over time, there are two major risks we can’t take as a community. One is the ramifications of a significant loss if we committed to run then were forced to cancel at the last minute. The other is the risk of causing an outbreak in our community.
MPA sympathises with all the community organisations that will now lose their annual fundraising event and want to thank them for their cooperation in recent months. MPA would also like to thank our Field Days team for their sterling efforts over the last six months to try to make the event possible. I’m sure you join with the Committee as we look forward to a brighter outcome in 2021.
