THE BIG hits just keep coming, with the news that the Trundle Bush Tucker Day (TBTD) has been cancelled for 2021 due to the current COVID-19 situation in NSW.

It is another bitter pill to swallow for residents in Parkes Shire on the back of the Parkes, Peak Hill, Tullamore and Trundle Shows all announcing they had to be cancelled last week.

Once again, it is an absolutely necessary decision, and in a post to their Facebook page, the TBTD committee were gutted to confirm the cancellation of the 2021 event.

"It is with great sadness that on behalf of the Trundle Bush Tucker Day committee, we would like to officially announce the cancellation of Trundle Bush Tucker Day 2021," the statement read.

"Given the unpredictable nature of the current COVID-19 situation in NSW, we feel it is not safe to proceed with the planning of TBTD 2021.

"We would like to take the opportunity to thank all our volunteers that make the day possible...with planning and commitment all year around.

"We would also like to thank the community of Trundle, our generous sponsors, stall holders, food vendors, entertainment, Parkes Shire Council and, most importantly, our ticket holders!

This has been a difficult decision to make...but we have made our decision based on the safety of our region and our community here at Trundle," read the statement.
