Club Chairman Sam Barrack said: “Following this week’s committee meeting, members have unanimously agreed that the Steam and Vintage Fair planned for 2021 will be postponed until 2022 in light of continuing uncertainty over Covid-19 restrictio ns and how they will affect events over the summer.

"This decision was not taken lightly and we waited until March to make it in the hope that it would be possible to proceed with our annual event, but we have always taken the safety of our members, contractors, exhibitors, traders and attendees very seriously and we must ensure our dedication to everyone’s well-being remains our top priority and act in line with government public health guidelines.

"We will be working towards a revitalised Steam and Vintage Fair on June 18 and 19, 2022 when we hope everyone can join us to celebrate our steam heritage once again .”

The Bon Accord Steam Engine Club will be steaming ahead with plans for the 2022 Steam Fair and is contactable via the Club’s popular Facebook page.

The Club would have celebrated its 50th anniversary in 2020 but its Golden Jubilee celebrations were cancelled following the first coronavirus lockdown. The Club remains dedicated to promoting and maintaining interest in our steam heritage. It looks forward to welcoming exhibitors, traders and visitors to its 2022 fair.
