I was much saddened to read about the plight of the fun fair at Edwinstowe – it is proposed it would be moved as part of plans for a new Sherwood Forest visitor centre. The first I knew of it was when I read about it in the Chad. This is a fair that is well established. We used to go with our daughter and that is some 40 years ago.
It is loved by a lot of people and children – a petition of 900 people says so. Has anyone any idea what trauma this heavy handedness is causing to this family?
To me, it shows a lack of compassion and feeling for others. That site is an ideal spot near a picnic area and car park. Some bright spark has got to throw a spanner in the works again to cause some upset. No doubt, the RSPB is important, why not shove it somewhere else?
