The Directors and the committee behind Chickerell Steam and Vintage Show have decided to cancel this year's event which was due to be held on the 4th and 5th July.

They say the health and safety of visitors, exhibitors and volunteers must be their first priority during the coronavirus pandemic.

In a statement to Wessex FM they said:

"This continually evolving situation is beyond our control and this decision has certainly not been made lightly, as we know many of you will appreciate and understand.

"As a group we would have liked to continue to plan for this year but with the uncertainty of COVID-19 in the coming months, cancelling the show for 2020 seems the best option.

"We strongly believe that the health, safety and wellbeing of our visitors, exhibitors, traders and volunteers must always be our top priority, as well as ensuring the future economic sustainability of our show."

Organisers say they are looking forward to coming back next year.
