Or­gan­is­ers should con­sider res­i­dents

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - OPINION -

I READ with in­ter­est that a char­ity boot fair will be held at the mar­ket, Oribital Park on Sun­day, May 7. And the choice of char­i­ties couldn’t be bet­ter. How­ever, I would like the or­gan­is­ers at the mar­ket to con­sider lo­cal res­i­dents in South Willes­bor­ough. Firstly the start time of 7am. Peo­ple who have to get up early

for work six days of the week like to use Sun­day’s as a “liein” day. With boot fair traf­fic hav­ing to use the en­trance go­ing over the cat­tle rung, to gain en­trance, this is not pos­si­ble. Per­haps the top en­trance could be used in­stead. Se­condly, can the mar­ket or­gan­is­ers make some pro­vi­sion for the car park­ing thus re­leas­ing the South Willes­bor­ough roads of ex­tra un­wanted cars parked? Thirdly, will the mar­ket ar­range for lit­ter pick­ers to come out af­ter the event, to clear-up the lit­ter and dirty nap­pies left where cars have been parked? South Willes­bor­ough res­i­dents are fed-up with this prob­lem, week af­ter week. Mar­garet Pryke, South Willes­bor­ough.
