Tinkers Park 2020

*Important Update - The Event WILL Go Ahead*

Dear All 
As you know, we said that, in the light of the Covid-19 pandemic, we would review each of our planned summer events at Tinkers Park one month beforehand, to determine whether or not to proceed.
Following The Changes Already In Place And Those Effective From 4th July, Including The Review Of The Social Distancing Standard Which Is Being Reduced To One Metre, It Is Now Possible To Hold Certain Events Where Social Distancing Can Generally Be Maintained.
I am pleased to report that the decision has been taken that the event planned for the weekend of 1st - 2nd August should proceed, provided that we can ensure the event is operated in accordance with the latest official guidance.
We have established that we have sufficient railway layouts, inside stalls and outside stalls, and buses on the Sunday for the event to take place under the new regime - although there will be fewer than usual in all these categories - and that the layouts and internal stalls will be accommodated in the exhibition hall, where  entrance and exit will be separate and a one-way system in place. There will be ample space for visitors between the various items, and all aspects of the show will be subject to a further review, to ensure that we are compliant in all areas.  Hand wash sanitation units will be in position around the site.
We appreciate that some of the regular supporters of our Bus Rally will not be able to attend, but there has been strong enthusiasm from many to proceed with the event.
Things will necessarily be different at this year's rally, with buses being parked up as 'static' displays. Some vehicles will operate a shuttle service to Buxted railway station and Uckfield bus station, and these will be subject to a  'deep clean' by the owner, on their return.
Thank you for your support and let's hope 2021 will be a much better year.
Kind regards
Paul Llewellyn
