GUEST,Sidmouth Resident Sidmouth Folk Week 2006 (168* d) RE: Sidmouth Folk Week 2006 19 Feb 06

I was also at the meeting and have to say Steve of Sidmouth's report is pretty accurate.

Yes, Lizzie, there were some positive comments but there were also many negative ones and the woman who said she was glad to get rid of the international arena sadly spoke for many Sidmouth residents who never liked the Folk Festival and don't like the new Folk week much either.

Of course those who have shops or B&Bs are quite happy to take the money of those who attend the Folk Week but it's when you see them in a meeting in mid-winter instead of in Sidmouth in the summer that you realise they're also very happy to bite the hands that feed them.

As one who would love to see the return of the International Festival because it was the colour of the international dance sides and arena displays that I most enjoyed, I found last week's meeting terribly depressing.

Sorry Lizzie but that's the way it is. Don't hit me when you see me in the grocers!
