Friends of Pontefract Park had decided to go ahead with the annual gathering in the park last week, but as the weather deteriorated, it was axed.

In a statement posted online by group treasurer Howard Andrews, he said : “We left the final decision to cancel too late to catch some of our contributors before they set off.

“In future, however, we’ll endeavour to make a decision to cancel earlier, and then stick by it. A lesson to be learned.”
