Re the ceremony to officially open Scarborough Market after refurbishment:
I attended and what a disappointment.
Very few local people were there – it should have had it advertised in the town centre, a banner or similar.
There were reporters and some official persons.
A couple arrived to entertain the crowd! They were very good – the best part of the event. They stood in the central cleared area where it was easy for people to see them, great.
The mayor arrived, he was announced and he came through one of the main doors stood just inside the market and said a few words. Why did he not stand in the central area?
I could not believe what I had witnessed. I was embarrassed to be a Scarborian.
The market is looking good. It was in need of some loving care, but I feel that visitors will not find it if there is not a banner advertising it with directions.
