Breaking News...

After further discussions with DBC officers this morning, Mr Crow has decided not to proceed with the fair on Haughton Road. All of the equipment will be packed away and the vehicles will leave at the weekend.

I understand that Mr Crow wants to operate a fair in June 2008, and will begin talking to the Council about a suitable site. He wants to honour the 3000 free ride tickets he issued, when he returns.

The 7 Haughton ward councillors made their opposition clear to this fair on this site, and we're delighted with the outcome. Not a single resident told me that they thought this was good place to hold such as event. A big vote of thanks to the Town Hall officers and the Police who worked very hard on this difficult matter.

Strange that, Nick, as I passed tonight at teatime, a yellow (AA type) directional sign, outside the approach to the Civic Theatre which was advertising the fair on Haughton Road. Now who allowed those professional signs to be attached to the local lamposts?

No-one, I guess - I think the fair organisers simply put them up.

To be clear, Jan, we had no prior warning that Craow's Fair was coming to Darlington.

good grief Nick, 95 comments!!!

not sure how many different individuals though, the various "anonymous" spelling mistakes were rather consistant....

(at least in the comments which i could actually decipher)

Still, if you are being judged in your competition on these numbers you should win by a landslide.
