The Meadows Festival has been held annually since
1975. It normally includes sporting events, stalls and live music.
However, due to escalating costs of staging this
event the organisers have decided not to hold the event in 2006.
Costs have now reached £20,000pa, including public liability insurance
premiums that have increased from £200pa to £3,750pa over the last five
Local Community Groups have pledged that they
will attempt to revive the event for 2007.
