Subject: RE: WARNING Scarborough Seafest
I, for one, am looking forward to the weekend immensely. It is a great shame that we have lost Scarborough as a venue, but credit is due to Richard for finding an alternative, rather than just giving up. In my 'business owner' guise I am only too aware of how drastic cuts have been in the last couple of years and how suddenly councils and firms have to change direction or make unpopular decisions. This is not Richard's fault. Blame David Cameron or American banks etc if you want a villan.
As for publicity - perhaps it would be worth investigating Facebook for those who feel there is a lack of it - the event has been widely advertised there, since the venue changed. And I would imagine that most people who have previously attended any of 'Klondike's' other events will have their web site bookmarked. Again - plenty of info for interested parties.
Previous contributors are quite right. This is not a time for carping at the people who are organising events we enjoy. It is a time for supporting them and spreadng the word ourselves so that we can help events such as this survive the bad times and flourish in the good ones.
