I would like to say that SAMJO the originator of this post has some merit in his/her comments in that I agree it is a shame none of the business bothered to get involved.
I also agree with SAMJO in that yes companies gave vouchers and prizes to the event.. but that is only advertising to get us punters into their establishment to buy but what did they do otherwise
SAMJO was correct in that Alison of IICE was the only Main Street business to create a visible window display to celebrate the jubilee.
I am surprised that the Dickens Heath Council did not do more to help the Dickens Heath Jubilee Committee by putting up some displays or bunting around the Village or other Jubilee Decorations
Having read SAMJO’s posts elsewhere he makes a great point about parking and those that flout the law by parking on Double Yellow Lines – especially outside the Council Offices. Maybe if the Council started issuing fines it would solve two things – 1) clear roads 2) money in the coffers to help pay for and support the efforts of those trying to promote Dickens Heath and putting on shows
CHRIS EDWARDS if it was the council who decreed that the organising committee had to take down the bunting then maybe we should question those who have been elected to the Council for at the moment they don’t appear to be doing anything!
ALISON MILLS why don’t you keep your flags up! Like you I am proud to be English and therefore British! why should you take it down its not only Jubilee, its Euro 2012 football and then there is that little event taking place in London in July not to mention Wimbledon.
FLY THE FLAG AND BE PROUD
well done Alison for taking the effort to do something. Also to the Jubilee Committee who tried to do something never easy being on a committee.
