Lithgow Flash Gift Cancelled
Media Release issued 20/11/14
The Lithgow flash gift committee held a meeting late yesterday afternoon to determine the viability of running the 2014 Lithgow Flash Carnival.
Councillor Ray Thompson, Chairman of the Lithgow Flash gift Committee said "it was not an easy decision for the Flash Gift committee to make at this late stage to cancel the event. We had to think of what was best for our sponsors and the benefits to the community."
Councillor Thompson went on to say "With the low numbers of entries received from the NSWAL, we considered our options and feel it was more beneficial for the community and our sponsors to cancel the event."
"The Lithgow Flash Gift committee would like to take this opportunity to thank all our sponsors for their ongoing support of this event. We will be talking to our sponsors in regards to supporting other community events that will be of greater benefit to the community."
"I would also like to sincerely thank Lithgow Little A's in particular Ray Stoneley and Charlie Healey for all the assistance, guidance and support they have offered to the Carnival over the years. Their support has been greatly appreciated by the Committee. "
