The annual Chalfont St Giles Show has announced that it will not be taking place this year.

The Chairman of the Committee, Simon Swerling, stated that due to the governments advice on mass gatherings the show, that would've been on September 5, won't be able to go ahead. 

He added: "I would like to thank the committee members for the work they have already put into the show for this year and for their support. "We are saddened by the decision we have had to take but know that you will understand the reasons. 


"We look forward to a time when this all over and we can celebrate together."

There was also a suggestion of, depending on the situation, a street party later in the year to bring the community together. 
This is one of many local events such as 'Pub in the Park' to be cancelled due to the coronavirus pandemic.
