Below is email I received from Dave Holt regards the Wirral festival.
Sad news, the event will be greatly missed this year.
I am writing to tell you the sad news that this years Wirral kite festival will not be going ahead. The cancelation has been brought about by the Council having to make cutbacks in their events budget. This could last for the next three years.
I will however be looking at next years festival being funded by sponsorship. I will be calling on local business firms and maybe looking into linking with other events that have shown interest in the past. If any of you know of any corporate businesses that may be interested please do feel free to contact me and let me know.
I would like to thank all of you for the support you have shown in the past and sincerely hope we can all meet up again on "The Dips" very soon.
All the best for this year and I hope to see you all within the coming months.
