Your reaction to Weymouth funfair dates being cancelled


It seems the audience of Air 107.2 is not happy with the decision of Weymouth Town Council to cancel the majority of dates for the funfair on the seafront.

Anti-social behaviour and noise have been cited as the reasons to reduce the number of days the funfair can operate from 74 to 20.

We asked what you thought about it on Facebook, and here’s what some of you said:

Lizzie Millner
Wrong decision. I think the fair, Weymouth Town Council, Dorset Council, the hoteliers and Dorset Police should have come together to improve security and help stamp out the antisocial behaviour when the fair is on. All the Town Council has done is give into pampered hotel guests.

Denise Wallis
Absolutely ridiculous is what it is.

Francesca Gale
The anti social behaviour was intimidating but I’m sad it has to go.

BobbieJo Treglown
Appeasing the few it seems

Wendy Lewington
Old people making the decision. Needs new life. Sad with no thought for local business who will lose revenue from food drinks etc
