It seems, although I have no official confirmation that the Wirral Show Committee has called time, and there will be no show in 2010, or in years beyond. I have only picked this up via a Council Media Statement which reads:
A Council spokesperson said: “It was with great sadness that we learned of the committee’s decision. We would like to pay tribute to the hard work and dedication of all those volunteers involved over many years. It is simply not possible, at a time of significant financial constraints, for the Council to take over the running and funding of the show. We will continue to work hard alongside all those people organising events in the area to ensure that Wirral continues to have a successful programme of events for both residents and visitors.”
