WHY is it that the Splash Festival is held every year? It is just the Kings Beach stalls relocated, with every stall or every second stall selling sunglasses, wallets, watches, etc. Who actually buys them?

Also, the venue is simply wrong. Parking is a no-no, the pavements are blocked and the verges are parked “full”.

The obvious place would be Kings Beach. There is plenty of parking and away from all the blocks of flats, which must bear the constant din of shrieking voices of so-called artists.

Come on Dean Biddulph, this is your area. Do something. The grass is totally destroyed.

This is the wrong area for this festival. Use your influence to move it to Kings Beach.
