Letter: Let's have more council support for sandwich business

I am very surprised that the film day that was held on Selston Country Park on Saturday had a burger van present.

Across the road was Selston Sarnies, owned and run by Emma Olden, who was awarded a Covid Award by Ashfield District Council.

She stayed open all last year feeding the NHS, people in need etc.

Surely Ashfield District Council could have asked Selston Sarnies to stay open for the event as a gesture, and not put money into another company.

One letter this week asks why Selston Sarnies wasn't involved in a recent film day event.
