Thank you, showmen

As parents of a son with severe learning disabilities, we would like to publicly thank the members of the Showmen’s Guild (Western Section) for inviting our son and other children to a morning of free fair rides at the recently held Barnstaple Fair.

With all the pageantry associated with Barnstaple Fair and the buzz of the carnival, the generosity of the showmen is often forgotten.

Again, on behalf of all the parents and our sons and daughters, thank you. Thanks also for the free toy.

Thank you also to Barnstaple Town Council for providing our sons and daughters with a buffet lunch at the Barnstaple Hotel afterwards.

Mr and Mrs John Clarke
