AIRSHOW NEWS: Southend Airshow Cancelled, though not scrapped completely

An article posted by the Southend Echo today has said the Southend Air Festival 2013 has been cancelled following Council Budget cuts.

Council leader Nigel Holdcroft said: “We no longer have any leeway and we have to make real cuts to services in order to balance our books – and that involves making some very hard choices.

“Some of the savings we are proposing won’t be popular with residents but I would ask them to bear in mind that this crisis was not of our making.”

Heart Radio reports that the cancellation may not be a total loss, pointing out the event has not been scrapped completely.

“The Air Show will no longer run as an annual event, although not scrapped completely, to save £130,000.”
