The Royal Northern Agricultural Society has postponed its summer educational event due to the growing threat of coronavirus.
The event – Countryside Live 2020 – had been due to take place at Mackie’s of Scotland at Westertown, Rothienorman, on May 31 and June 1. The event will now take place on May 30 and 31 2021.
“It looks as if coronavirus is going to be with us for some time and our office-bearers feel it would be inappropriate to go ahead with the event on a farm producing milk, ice cream and chocolate for human consumption,” said event convener, Louise Mutch.
“It was decided the decision should be taken now to give sponsors, potential trade stand exhibitors and schools adequate notice.”
