Cancelled- Teignmouth Airshow 2020
Dear friends, sponsors and supporters, we hope you are all keeping safe and well during this difficult time.
Our committee would like to say a big thank you to all those who have continued to keep the country moving forward and for those who have stayed at home to keep others and our NHS safe.
It is with this huge effort and sacrifice in mind that the difficult decision has been made to postpone the 2020 Teignmouth Airshow until July 2021.
Our main priority is the safety and well being of you our supporters and we feel that in the current climate it would not be feasible to host an Airshow.
As well as managing the safety of our supporters we also have the heavy financial strain that we are feeling due to the cancellation of several of our fundraising events, the biggest being our Family Fun Weekend due to take place this weekend. This event is the largest in our fundraising calendar and without this we simply will not have the funds needed, even if it was safe to continue with an Airshow this year.
Despite this we are instead planning on bringing our event to you at home, with the announcement of our Online Music Festival earlier this week. With over 15 live acts taking place on Friday 1st & Saturday 2nd May we hope you are able to join us on Facebook from the comfort of your own home!
We feel that our Online Music Festival is an ideal way to be able to put a little back into our community during these tough times. Many of our committee members are Key Workers, from hospital construction to supermarket staff we can see first hand the efforts our community is going to to keep everyone safe.
Members of our committee are also involved in volunteering for a local project that is ensuring those who are in self isolation, elderly and vulnerable receive a home cooked roast dinner every Sunday. This project is a joint effort from several community groups and volunteers and is run purely on donations. It is with this in mind that should anybody wish to donate during our Online Music Festival all funds raised will be donated straight to this fantastic cause.
The committee all selflessly volunteer their time to bring an Airshow and weekend of events to the town and will be working hard to ensure the 2021 event is possible and is a fantastic celebration for the residents of our town. We will therefore be exploring fundraising options for when the current restrictions are lifted, with all funds now rolling over to 2021.
We thank you for your continued support.

Teignmouth Airshow Committee
