The Wairarapa A&P show has been cancelled for the second year in a row.

The Wairarapa A&P Society said that due to the uncertainty with the covid-19 restrictions the show could not go on in Clareville on October 30-31, as planned.

“After holding a committee meeting, it was voted by an overwhelming majority to cancel this year’s show. It is with much regret that we have had to make this difficult decision,” the society said on Tuesday.

It said many factors were taken into consideration in making the decision, including the wider Wairarapa community public health, the A&P financial position, and difficulties of hosting a show under current restrictions.

The society said there was also a risk that alert levels may change before the first day of the show.

Carterton Mayor Greg lang said there was much disappointment about the cancellation of the show, “one of the crown jewels of the Carterton social calendar”.

Lang said the council understood how much it needed to safeguard our community and visitors at this time.

“We hope that we can all enjoy the show once more in 2022.”
