Fireworks Night event cancelled

A Council spokesperson said: "We’re very sorry to announce that we’ve had to cancel our Fireworks Night event at Chestnuts Field this evening due to the bad weather.

"This was a very difficult decision to make but the welfare of our guests is always our first priority. Unfortunately due to wet weather and adverse ground conditions it would be unsafe to proceed with the fireworks display tonight.

"Our annual fireworks night is an extremely popular fixture on our events calendar and we will update you should this event be rescheduled at a later date.

"We apologise for any inconvenience this has caused and we ask that you pass this message on to any family and friends who may have been planning to attend the event."
