It is with great sadness that we are reporting that Kidsgrove Carnival in 2012 which was due to take place this Saturday at Clough Hall Park in Kidsgrove has had to be cancelled because of the heavy rainfall, which has left the ground in Clough Hall Park waterlogged in places.
The decision which was taken this morning by the Kidsgrove Carnival committee was taken with a heavy heart as many members have been working hard to make the event happen.
Mary Maxfield commented in our forum boards, "Carnival cancelled because of the condition of the park grounds. They are extremely boggy and with the weather forecast for tomorrow it will get worse. Local Radios stations, Sentinel, participants have been informed as well as advertising banners removed. Meetings are going to be held to see if an event like a fun day can be held sometime in September. Very disappointing but we have to protect people and the park."
Lets hope that something can be organised for September.
