Circus has left the town (and the mud)

Did you go to the Circus? – what did you think of it?

Ruth Hayes-Roome says: “Hello. As a resident of Twyford Avenue I feel compelled to share pictures of way the ground has been left behind by the circus, with the recent unavoidable weather as a cause, I’m sure, but still shocked”

 

Raunds Town Council Clerk has commented: “The Circus will be returning to ‘make good’ the field as they have in previous years. They have said that this year it has been really well attended and the weather didn’t put anyone off coming.”

    To be fair (no pun intended) its not as bad as I would’ve expected but still a mess, if you want to see a mess take a drive up Shelton road, that’s like the Somme top to bottom

    Due to the weather the circus should have been cancelled. Previous times it has been there and the weather wasn’t like this year they had left huge holes where the posts had been as well as churning up the ground. No attempt to make good by them or the council who obviously made some money out of it. The ground was dangerous to walk on, daresay it will be the same this time.

      If it disrupts you that much have you considered moving? Or putting ear muffs on!! It’s entrainment for the public for crist sake, why should it be cancelled due to some rain. It rains all over the country don’t see other places moaning or cancelling fun things for there locals. I’m sure you’d be quick to moan if raunds didn’t put things on!!

    I think having the circus attend the town is fab, both my kids loved it, it’s just a shame the weather has been pants which has affected the field.

    What do you expect with this weather.
    I live nearby and think it is great that the circus comes to town, that field is muddy whenever it rains all you need is wellie boots.
    As for cancelling it, it is their living why should they, it was well attended I am pleased for them.

    Again it’s just a little mud. The time taken to photograph the evidence and make point could have been better spent by picking up a broom and clearing up the road yourself if it’s really that much of an issue. 🙄

    Where I originally came from, a bit of mud on the road was common place. It was left by either tractors, or usually dairy cows traipsing from field to farm twice a day. And, it wasn’t just mud up your car doors when you drove through it!
    And, 90% of field entrances were full of sludge almost year round. So this is nothing given its a once a year thing.

    O give over and find something worthy to moan about it’s abit of mud that will disappear in a few weeks an grass will grow back. I hope the people that went had a good time beings that’s the whole purpose of it not for your typical moaning mervs to have a little dig at petty points and can I add you live in the country side full of it so it’s not alien to anyone

    I’d say if it gave happiness and joy to at least one single child then it was more than worth it? And if, dare I say it, there was even more than that then it was a roaring success!! Those that are complaining need to try and remember life is to be enjoyed, learn to dance in the rain (and mud) your skins waterproof!!
