Dear Sir,

It was great to see children enjoying themselves at the Fair in the town centre.

However it was not so great to have to walk a great distance to the doctor’s surgery in Bewick Crescent, as I have mobility problems.

Whose stupid idea was it to allow the parking for the surgery and the church to be taken by a fairground?

Apart from the inconvenience to residents wanting to use either service, the noise to both the surgery users and nearby residents must be unbearable. Surely somewhere else could have been found.

I would also like to know how the town centre is suitable for a fairground which must cause some damage to the surface, and yet is not suitable for a market which would attract visitors to the town?
