Select Committee on Environment, Transport and Regional Affairs Appendices to the Minutes of Evidence

Letter to Mr George Scarrott from Lambourn Festival Committee


  On behalf of the Committee I would like to thank you for coming to Lambourn over the August Bank Holiday and to apologise for the behaviour of the small band of Lambourn youngsters who made life difficult for you and your colleagues. We have spoken with the police and expressed our disappointment that they did not provide better support and, now that we are aware of the problem, we will put more pressure on them next year to provide some police presence at the Fair.

  We do hope that you will return to Lambourn next year as we feel that the Fair is an important part of the Festival and we would be very sorry to lose it.

Louise Wilkin (Mrs)
