Town’s fun fair cancelled

A FAIR due to take place in Coronation park, Eastwood has been cancelled in case the vehicles ruin the turf.

The fun fair was due to take place in May, but Broxtowe Borough Council has cancelled the event because of possible damage to the ground and drainage issues.

Resident Howard Jones raised concerns about the damage the fair could do to the park at an Eastwood Town Council meeting last month.

The town council wrote to the borough council outlining the concerns and received a response back last week saying it would not be going ahead.

Mr Jones had said the fair vehicles would have to drive over the entire length of the park because there were no short cuts to the area where they would have to park up and said the play park equipment could also be damaged.
