Swansea's annual summer show is to be stopped after an unbroken run of more than 30 years in a bid by Swansea City and County Council to save money.

The Western Mail (p3) reports that the authority has to save more than£300,000 from its annual leisure programme. An estimated£25,000 will be saved by cancelling the August bank holiday event.

The authority is planning to save a further£35,000 by fixing Christmas illuminations to the side of buildings instead of hanging them across streets.

Alan Lloyd, vice chairman of the council's leisure committee told the paper: 'What we have done in arriving at our 1997/8 budget is to continue to give the people of Swansea what they want within the restraints of the government's spending limitations imposed on us.'
