Festival chance
I sympathise with Mrs Susan Platts whose enjoyment of the Saturday night entertainment at Newark Festival was tempered somewhat by the behaviour of some members of the audience she was unfortunate enough to be close to (Crowd Control Suggestions, News Views, July 2).

Sadly, in any audience numbering in the thousands, there is almost always going to be a small minority who manage to spoil things for others, and are unrepentant about doing so.

I hope Mrs Platts’ overall experience does not put her off giving Newark Festival another chance in future years.

The event is really starting to establish itself as an annual highlight to look forward to.

United front
THERE is strength in numbers, so the saying goes, and three groups of campaigners have united to put that to the test. The pressure groups say they have joined forces to try to keep Newark’s compassionate heart beating.

While the groups have separate goals, each supports the other’s aims and objectives and they have agreed to work together under the Sign Up For Newark banner.

They are petitioning for Newark Orchard School to be rebuilt; for Woods Court care home to be saved from closure; and for Newark Hospital’s share of the Sherwood Forest Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust PFI debt to be paid off and the hospital’s services upgraded.

Each hopes to collect 10,000 signatures at which point they would be able to secure a meeting with Government ministers and officials where they could put their case.
