Popular event is washed out to sea

Aylesbury on Sea, the family event scheduled to take place in Vale Park on Sunday 7 July, had to be cancelled due to adverse weather.

The forecast of heavy rain and the possibility of thunder made it too much of a risk.

In a statement, the town council said: ‘Decisions like these are not taken lightly.

‘After thoroughly reviewing all available weather forecasts and considering our responsibility to our volunteers, suppliers, and you, our valued visitors, we have decided to cancel our popular annual event.

‘We look forward to welcoming you to our next free community event, Parklife Weekend, from 23-25 August.’
