Weather washes out this weekend’s Leek Party in the Park

THIS weekend’s Party in the Park in Leek has been cancelled because of the weather.

Leek Town Council Events Committee have issued the following statement:

“Following a site meeting at 4pm today, it is with great regret that we have had to make the decision to cancel the ‘Party in the Park’ event in Brough Park, Leek this coming Sunday.

“The adverse weather conditions, and in particular today’s forecast of wind gusts of 30 mph during Sunday afternoon, were the deciding factors in making the decision that the event could not be held safely.

” Leek Carnival will still take place but in a different format and at a different venue. Please visit their Facebook site for further details.

” Naturally we are very disappointed that circumstances have forced this decision. We will be back in 2020 with ‘Party in the Park’. “
