Cherry Blossom Festival Matangi

Alison from Cambridge

It was with disappointment that I learnt of the cancellation of this festival because some neighbours objected to the traffic noise for a few days in the year and stopped the council from issuing event consent. I wonder if they considered the three years of hard work the owners out into making their property ready for this festival. Did they realise that they were putting over 300 catering, entertainment, ground and driving staff out of work for a week? They have also disappointed over 3000 members of the public from enjoying a day out and cost them part of their fee. They also managed to put the promotional company out of business and into liquidation. Why did you not go on holiday for that week if peace and quiet is so important to you? I hope you can compensate the owners in some way for the chaos and disruption you have caused.
