No sympathy in future

MY SYMPATHY goes out to all those people in Local Government and North Somerset Council officers who are working to organise outdoor events for our visitors and residents.

MY SYMPATHY goes out to all those people in Local Government and North Somerset Council officers who are working to organise outdoor events for our visitors and residents.

I have just experienced how a seafront attraction, which not only was a fantastic fun charitable event, and last year enabled the organisers to donate all the profits of �4,000 to local charities and good causes, was criticised by a local resident as being too noisy.

I am referring to the real ale festival on the Beach Lawns.

I could understand if this event carried on after midnight, but on the night in question the jazz band stopped at 10.15pm and the public had all vacated the beer tent by 10.35pm. The last people to leave were members of Weston Lions Club who had been clearing up the marquee for the following day's event.

Members of Weston Lions are very disappointed by this negative response from some local seafront residents. Local business people sponsored the event and many residents, holidaymakers and visitors have all helped support this annual event. It is sad when, in these times of uncertainty, a few individuals can dampen the enthusiasm of so many people who are working to raise funds in order to help improve life for those less fortunate and suffering ill health.

The Lions Club of Weston consists of a group of ordinary people trying to do amazing things for the benefit of others.

As a resident of many years standing, when I read in future that someone living on the seafront complains of noise or too many activities on the seafront, I will have no sympathy and suggest they move elsewhere. Let's have more events to help improve Weston's image and attract more visitors and money to the town.
