Can someone please explain the merits of holding this carnival in LG. Talking with local residents there appears to be a certain amount of trepidation about this years event due to previous years experience of vandalism and the constant disgusting practice of drunken people urinating in residents gardens and terraces (despite the organisers providing toilet facilities), not to mention the noise nuisance to the village. Local bars and restaurants are requested to contribute towards the cost of holding this event but the places that I frequent say they get little or no benefit from this event. I'm not sure if this is correct but I have been told that this is the last year the current organiser will be involved with the Carnival and, unless some good samaritan comes forward, it may not happen in future years. I am sure many people would be disappointed if that were to be the case, but I'm also sure that many of the local residents, me included, would say good riddance!
