Reply to Elle Boshe re. Bay Road Festival

Dear Editor:

I agree with letter writer Elle Boshe (10 March) that it would be a shame to lose the Bay Road Kilbirnie Festival. We shouldn’t have to be pessimistic, however, given that both the Businessmen and Martin Wilson claim to be interested in preserving it, as I observed in my previous letter (3 March).

Last year it came out that The Businessmen’s Association had not even talked to Mr. Wilson, the organizer of all previous Kilbirnie Festivals, prior to starting to organize their own plan.  I wonder what their priorities really were, and are?  Surely they could help Mr Wilson put the festival on in 2017 if their priority was to preserve the Festival.
