More festival spirit needed

I congratulate organisers of The Fountain festival held on Gala Day in Galashiels (Salmon Inn and Auld Mill).

The time and expense they go to is much appreciated by most people.

Shame a few people spoil it for the rest by not joining in the spirit of the event, erecting gazebos that take up so much room, emptying the shelves of Tesco with their own version of bring-your-own-bottle – maybe next year they could site themselves in Tesco’s car park and request it supplies free entertainment and toilet facilities.

It would not surprise me if The Fountain festival is pulled because of lack of support by a few.
