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.
