Caldicot Town Team have had to make the decision to pull away from our partnership with Caldicot Events Committee.
Caldicot Town Team have had to make the decision to pull away from our partnership with Caldicot Events Committee, which means we will not be taking part in the organisation of The Carnival or the Christmas Light Switch On this year.
Our reasons behind this are due to long term issues, which have failed to be resolved by the Events Committee (EC).
We invested heavily into both events in 2016, to a total of over £7,000. CTT spoke at length numerous times to the EC trying to resolve issues they had raised, the main issue was surrounding social media promotion of the events. Due to the EC not having any social media pages. It was decided in 2015 that the two events would be promoted through our CTT pages. Unfortunately, the EC felt that it was not clarified clearly that the event was in fact run in partnership.
After long meetings and discussions, with both the EC and CTT directors we don’t feel we can continue to invest our time and money into events, when there are clear issues with the committee that they are not seeming to want to resolve. We would wish the EC well in the events, should they wish to open up lines of communication with us about our involvement in the future we would be more than happy to meet and discuss.
While we fully appreciate that this may have an impact to the public, you can be assured that we have tried our hardest to help the event prosper, however the situation has become untenable and with a heavy heart we have had no choice but to make this decision.
