Next year for Westward Ho! festival?
SIR - You very kindly published my recent letter advising of the cancellation of the proposed July Westward Ho! Family Fest, due to the delayed start of the village green improvements.
Our group has considered holding this event later in the year but regrettably this is not a feasible option due to other commitments and events in the North Devon area.
However, the group is reconvening in September with a view to organising a festival in 2012, by when the new green should be well established and available to be put to the use it is intended for.
Notwithstanding this cancellation, through our fund-raising activities and due to the generosity of our sponsors and supporters, we are delighted to have been able to make a donation of �680.43 to our nominated charity, Childrens Holiday Foundation North Devon.
I would like to thank all those people who gave their time and ultimate support for this excellent local charity.
