LETTER: Put pageant in the car park

Can DG First not offer better assistance to the good people involved in running the Galloway Pageant instead of putting obstacles in their way?

May I suggest that the local Riverside car park could be used as a temporary location for the pageant? It would be an ideal site. And if the weather is wet it would be better than walking around in a muddy field.

It might be possible to run events different from those on a grass surface and, furthermore, the toilets are at the locus along with all the local amenities. This would benefit the town and encourage those attending to stay longer – even if the weather was inclement.
