WE WANT A FUNFAIR ON AYRS LOW GREEN

Supported by Facebook Group - Growing up in Lochside, Whitletts and Dalmilling, and Remembering Auld Ayr.

TOTALLY FREE TO SIGN AND AIR YOUR VIEWS

South Ayrshire Council,in Ayr, have banned the use of Funfairs from being staged on Ayr Seafront-The Low Green, unless it was part of a bigger event, ie The Burns Festival in May can have a funfair on the Low Green, yet Ayrs Biggest Racing Festival cannot have a funfair on the Low Green, I think its depriving the people of Ayr and its visitors, of entertainment that the Codonas and Billy Hammond especially, have provided for years of tradition at Ayr, therefore we need to sign this petition, to get this new policy scrapped so the fairs may continue, I should also add that the ban was imposed without public consultation.

Despite this, they still allow Circuses to operate on the Low Green.

Please sign this petition to retain this great Ayr Tradition and lets help re establish a Funfair for September 2013
