Horrified over a lack of signs advertising fair
IN 2012 my wife and I were horrified to find there were no signs along the Glastonbury bypass or roundabout warning of the Tor fair.
We notified the Glastonbury town clerk who managed to get signs put out.
We were angry that once again no signs had been put out for this year's fair when we were passing along the bypass on Tor Fair day. We rang the town hall again. No one answered. We left a message for the town clerk to ring us. No one bothered. So we rang wonderful Mendip District Council (MDC). "Oh we don't deal with that, you will have to ring Somerset County Council."
We then asked for the number. "I don't know," the man replied. Typical MDC, useless as always.
Found the number, rang County Hall. They were disgusted no signs were put out and agreed to deal with the matter right away. This is a very dangerous road to cross. We expect next year, providing of course the fair is still there as there may be housing on the site, there will be no signs once again.
