The saviour of the seafront

LAST year Carters Steam Fair was praised as the saviour of the seafront, especially when they stayed on after the pier pavilion disaster, however not all the residents were happy, particularly those in Beach Road.

Now I fully sympathise with them when it comes to planned monstrosities like the proposed Lifestyle Tropicana, which would most certainly be a blot on the landscape. I am also sure they are incensed with the drone of joyriders speeding along Beech Road but activities on the seafront, and Beach Lawns in particular is another kettle of fish. When buying their properties they must have realised that they were in a prime position in the biggest and most popular seaside resort in the West of England.

If you do not like low flying aircraft you do not choose to live near an airport and if your garden backs on to a railway line you must realise that trains can rush by.

Beach Road residents are very privileged, they have wonderful sea views, witness gorgeous sunsets and have front seats for all that goes on, especially during the summer months.

In life we have to take the rough with the smooth and surely they can put up with a funfair for a short while. They do not own the seafront and the benefits far outweigh the slight inconveniences from time to time.
