ORGANISERS have this afternoon confirmed that the 4th Midsummer Jazz is going ahead tomorrow, despite the recent bad weather.

A spokesperson for the event said: “We’re watching the weather and it looks as though we’ll be good for another great Midsummer Jazz on Saturday evening. Ground conditions are OK but we suggest taking a picnic rug, groundsheet, or deckchairs … and perhaps an extra jumper! The area available for gazebos is being extended if you wish to take one along.

“Hot food and drink will be available all evening from the Refreshment Bar and the BBQ, and the Jazz Bar will be open”.
