Letter: Beer Festival - An appropriate use of a school?

In response to your article in last week's paper about Oatlands Fest taking place on Friday, March 11, and Saturday, March 12, 2016, can we please make it clear that not all the community support this event.

Thursday, 10th March 2016, 12:00 pm
Oatlands Beer Festival. (1303222AM7)

We have lived here for over 20 years and have had to cope with many changes to the school, from being a school where pupils where there from 9am until 3.30pm to now where they are there from 7.30am until 7pm, the constant noise, parking issues and damage to our cars.

This event you have to remember is being held in a school for children aged five to seven. Is it really an appropriate use of a school?

This weekend we face yet more disruption and noise until at least 1am both evenings.

Mrs P Waite
