You may have read in The News on Monday that this years Love Albert Road street festival won’t be going ahead. Rising police costs are one of the main reasons and organisers say it has become too much for them to do on their own. Hopes of a major sponsor or aid from the City Council haven’t seemed to arise this year so the event will not happen in late September as it has done for the past three years. It’s a sad turn of events as it has been a hugely popular and enjoyable day for the people of Southsea in recent times however organisers say that they will be concentrating on smaller events throughout 2010 including involvement with Love Your Bike on May 30th before hopefully staging another Love Albert Road Day in 2011.
