Haslingden Halo website Spam[edit]

This article (and related articles about Rossendale, Rawtenstall and Haslingden) are being defaced with the inclusion of links to website about the Haslingden Halo. This website is not official (and does not appear affiliated with any official organisations). Additionally, the quality of the content is very poor with low resolution photos, and poorly written content (with no source or citations). It seems somewhat plausible (although speculation) that this website is commercially motivated, with numerous adverts. Therefore, inclusion of this link is unhelpful, and lowers the quality of the respective Wikipedia entries.

Rossendale Radio spam[edit]

The entire section about Rossendale radio is so prominent that it is singling it out, however it "was" just part of the entertainment and should remain within that section. However since it was discontinued in 2012 it is misleading to continue to give it so much space in such a prominent position on the page. A mention that Rossendale once had a radio station is enough - perhaps someone can add a link to the Rossendale Radio wikipedia page where - if a reader is interested they can find out more. I have removed the entire section and left a mention of the website - that is adequate. Cadstar_User (talk) 22:27, 26 February 2013 (UTC)
