Fes­ti­val con­cern

Southern Riverina news - - NEWS -

Dear Ed­i­tor, It ap­pears Straw­berry Fields are plan­ning another fes­ti­val in the shire this year.

I do not think it is a good idea mainly be­cause it has been shown these fes­ti­vals bring more drugs into our com­mu­nity.

In my view it is also true that some fes­ti­val go­ers do not obey ba­sic road rules such as giv­ing way at a give way sign and stop­ping at a stop sign, which is ex­tremely dan­ger­ous be­cause of har­vest traf­fic every Novem­ber in our area. Noise is ex­ces­sive and con­tin­u­ous. The risk of fire is in­creased and evac­u­a­tion would be chaotic and life threat­en­ing.

It has been said these events pub­li­cise our area; let us en­sure this pub­lic­ity is al­ways pos­i­tive.

Fam­i­lies are our fu­ture so let us be known as a fam­ily friendly com­mu­nity.

By all means try to ed­u­cate the next gen­er­a­tion by mak­ing a small sac­ri­fice to show them we re­gard ex­per­i­ment­ing with drugs is too great a risk.

Yours etc. John Groutsch
