The annual charity event would normally see hundreds of islanders gather at Saumarez Park to enjoy the the thrills and spills of the day.

President of the Lions Club of Guernsey, Paul Allaway said: "It was a very difficult decision to make, but like other charities, numbers are diminishing and we don't have the people power."
