REMEDIAL work to deal with drainage issues which have made Todmorden’s Centre Vale Park unusable will start “as soon as possible” says Calderdale Council.

It will come too late to save the 2013 Agricultural Show, although Todmorden’s annual carnival will go ahead in May as planned.

The agricultural society had to make a decision this week whether or not to go ahead as it has to start paying out thousands of pounds for deposits and if it is still unsuitable for use in June, paying thousands of pounds for a full scale show.

President Shirley Fielder said members were reluctant to cancel but also realistic.
