Re your report of the departure of the agricultural machinery event LAMMA from the East of England Showground - you describe this as a ‘major blow for the city’.
What a shame you did not ask the Showground for our view.
Rather than being a ‘blow’ we believe this is a significant opportunity.
It will afford an opportunity for the Showground to have a winter indoor programme of events that bring business to the local economy day after day, rather than one major event which requires weeks to set up and break down.
