Successful carnival

It was great to see so many people supporting the carnival on Sunday. Fortunately the weather was good and even though some of the bands which had been booked for Wednesday weren't present the people on the floats, in the parade and those in the crowd equipped with whistles didn't seem to notice.
Interestingly the feedback from those campaigning on Saturday was that almost all visitors to the town were willing to sign the petition against a Tesco. They don't come on holiday to see the same street of shops they have at home, they enjoy visiting the variety of local, independent stores in Sheringham. And if that causes a bit of hardship to one or two local residents then isn't that something they can live with to ensure the town remains attractive and interesting?
