A town festival which has been in doubt will go ahead after organisers secured funding.

The 2014 Loughton Festival is to be sponsored by the town council and accountancy firm Haslers this May.

Sue Taylor, director of the Loughton Festival, said: "Without the town council grant of £1,000, we would have struggled to pay many of our expenses, and without the flyers provided by Haslers, we could not advertise our full programme of events.

“Their support means that our future is now looking far more settled."

Volunteers are still needed to help with raffles and other fundraising activities throughout the four-week festival.
