Letter: Surely there must be a better venue than this

I have nothing against guns or shooting.

I do however have a gripe about listening to two days solid bang bang bang as was the case last weekend with the Northern Shooting Show taking place.

The showground is more or less in the town and as such is not a suitable venue with the sound of the shots echoing off buildings and rumbling along the Crimple Valley.

I would also assume that very ill patients at Saint Michael’s wouldn’t want to hear it either.

There must be a more “out in the sticks” venue where this show could be held, without the noise nuisance it brings.
