We would like to thank everyone for coming to last night’s Shibden Spooktacular and helping us raise so much money for local and Rotary charities.
We are aware of an issue with the Park and Ride. The organisers would like to apologise to anyone who was affected by this and either delayed in getting to the event, or was unable to attend at all.
This was caused by a combination of several issues, many of which were beyond the control of the organisers:
The problems on the M62 leading to additional traffic in the area, coupled with a local accident and some inconsiderate parking by drivers who ignored event and local parking restrictions meant that there were severe delays experienced by some road users, including the Park & Ride buses.
Furthermore, the number of people attending the event and wanting to use the Park & Ride was significantly higher than expected – over 4 times the amount of those who used it last year.
The organising committee is a team made up of unpaid volunteers from several agencies and charities in the local area. We work very hard to try to ensure the event happens and that everybody attending enjoys themselves. We are very disappointed that this was not the case for everyone this year.
We appreciate your feedback, positive or otherwise, and will use those comments to help to improve on any future events.
For those who have already contacted us, we will be replying to you as soon as possible over the next couple of days.
Should you wish to tell us your thoughts on the event or if you have any suggestions on how it could be better, please fill in the form here.
