**THIS EVENT HAS BEEN CANCELLED**

Note from the organisers, the Lower Clarence Scottish Association:

CANCELLATION OF THE 116TH MACLEAN HIGHLAND GATHERING EASTER 10 & 11 APRIL 2020
In light of the Commonwealth Government’s recommendation advising against non-essential, organised public gatherings of more than 500 people, and after consulting with the Committee members of the Lower Clarence Scottish Association overnight, we have had to take the regrettable decision to cancel this year’s Maclean Highland Gathering, due to be held on 10 & 11 April 2020.

We would like to thank all competing bands, dancers, soloists, stall holders, sponsors and volunteers who contribute to making this event what it is and we apologise for the inconvenience that this will cause.

I will be working to contact all bands, solo players, stall holders, sponsors etc in the coming days to make arrangements for repayment of any fees etc that have already been transferred.

If you wish to contact me directly please call on 0429 842 472 or email secretary@macleanhighlandgathering.com.au.
