A petition has been launched calling for the Great Fair to be brought back to Carlisle.
Have your say
I agree totally with "Local res". I would much prefer to support local traders and object to the foreign markets who have "fresh" products (I'm not actually sure how they can advertise their produce as "fresh" when they have come from all over Europe! It is all well and good bringing multi-culture to Carlisle, but this MUST come at a cost to the local traders.
Why not get the Great Fair up and running again. It was very successful then and it will be again. Brings the Community together and pride to our city. So come on Council get your finger out. Or is it too much like hard work to organise?
Why not get the young people at The Youth Zone involved ?Assist with the planning, publicity, and even dressing up.Also - could we have LOCAL traders - it is all very well having these stalls from all over Europe....... but how about supporting the local / British economy?
