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

Letter to Mr George Scarrott from Wootton Bassett Town Council

  Just a quick note to respond to your query about recent legislation coming through about travelling Fairs.

  There is no doubt in my mind as to the continued value of historic Travelling Fairs. People in Wootton Bassett look forward to the Fair arriving, and you will know yourself how well supported the Fair is by Towns folk. Further more it provides a focal point of interest for all ages from the very young to the very old.

  In my view it is a true community focal point.

Johnathan Bourne
