West Wilts Show Cancelled
The West Wilts show has been cancelled permanently because Wiltshire Council have decided not to fund it from now on.
The bi-annual show was meant to go ahead next year. It's been running in Trowbridge since 1989. It used to be funded by West Wiltshire District Council but since they became a unitary authority Wiltshire Council say it's just too expensive to expect all tax payers, across the area fund it.
Last year it cost £180,000 to put on and made a loss of between £5,000 and £6,000.
There's talk now of a county-wide summer show. We'll keep you updated on Heart about that.
