I WAS saddened to see the article in The Hunts Post (November 21) regarding the St Neots Town Carnival.
I understand that the carnival raises money for lots of local charities, but on top of this it is a fun day out for all the family. Any event of this kind only does good for the community as a whole and that is why it must continue.
I feel there is a sickness in our society today. I'm afraid that it is a poor reflection of our times that people are prepared to sit idly and watch as yet another tradition dies out. And in this case it is a tradition with only good intentions in mind.
It is because people are reluctant to get off their backsides to help build community spirit that we have loud youths, vandalism, brawling in the street.
You may also want to watch:
People need to get together and have fun. By doing this the community bonds and pulls together. People start to look out for each other and most importantly they develop family values and respect for their neighbours.
That is why I for one will be at that committee meeting in December to see what can be done - not just to save the carnival, but to improve it and to ensure that it is around for future generations to enjoy.
