Ashbourne’s 2012 Highland Gathering

The perpetual rainfall has caused the cancellation of this Sunday’s Ashbourne Highland Gathering. Following record June rainfall the East Midlands was again put on Amber flood alert by the weather centre this week. As a result, Derbyshire Dales Council, which owns the land where the Gathering takes place every year, had no option but to call off the event.

Supported by the organising committee, the decision followed an inspection of Ashbourne Recreation Ground and Fishpond Meadows on Friday last week and again on Monday. The Recreation Ground is waterlogged and wouldn’t be able to accommodate vehicles that usually form part of the Gathering, while the Meadows, which is used for event parking, has standing water and is unusable.
