It is with great disappointment that we let you all know that the 2021 Axedale Quick Shear & Family Fun Day has been cancelled.
Like so many other community fundraising events we were hopeful that a lifting of CoVID restrictions would give us enough time to plan and hold the 2021 event, but sadly this isn’t the case. In the absence of any definite government guidelines for outdoor events into the future, our committee is unable to proceed with organising the Quick Shear with any confidence. In a ‘normal’ year, the committee would already be well underway with planning for the event, talking to sponsors and making financial commitments with our valued suppliers of merchandise and kids entertainment activities. But this has not been a ‘normal’ year.
Not being able to hold the Quick Shear next year will have a financial impact on the groups for whom our event raises much needed funds – the Axedale PreSchool, Axedale Primary School, Axedale Hall, Axedale and Mosquito Creek CFA’s. These groups may undertake other fundraising efforts in 2021, and if you are in a position to support those activities, we know that would be much appreciated.
As we move towards the end of 2020 and Christmas, we would also ask that you consider supporting any of the businesses, both in Axedale and in Bendigo, who have been loyal sponsors and donors to the Quick Shear. A full list of these businesses can be found here on our website.
