The committee running Camelon Mariners Day have decided to axe this year’s event which was scheduled for Saturday, June 13.
However, the uncertainty around the ongoing pandemic and how long restrictions on public gatherings will be in place led the organisers to call a halt.
But they have already asked entertainers and bands who were book for this year to attend next year on Saturday, June 12.

All the youngsters selected for this year’s retinue will have the same roles in 2021.
Committee member Heather Adam said: “There is so much uncertainty that we decided the right thing to do was cancel this year and have the same children in next year’s retinue.
“It’s very disappointing but there are more important things going on. We don’t know how long people will have to stay in the house so this seems like the sensible thing to do.
