Henty No-Go for September
The Henty Machinery Field Days Board has announced that September’s event will not proceed due to COVID-19 but is investigating the option of rescheduling to March 2022.
The Henty Machinery Field Days is the nation’s largest field days and outdoor agricultural event, with an economic value of more than $92 million and were due to be held on September 21-23.
Henty Machinery Field Days chief executive officer Belinda Anderson said the decision to look into rescheduling was based on the recommendation from NSW Health around the current challenge faced by NSW and the possibility of the virus being transmitted into regional areas.
“HMFD has been advised that we are able to operate under the 4sqm rule, however, NSW Health has strongly recommended the event be rescheduled,” Mrs Anderson said.
