We have a brand new expensive sports field at Ewingsdale which seems to be under utilised.

Why can’t the football field at the end of Marvell Street be used for parking, instead of the proposed present market site in Butler St, on Thursdays and some Sundays?

The footballers could move their ground to the new sports field. I can’t understand why this has not already taken place.

The football field at the end of Marvell Street seems to be rarely used. It is no further away from the town businesses for employers/employees to park and maybe there is room for tourists to park there as well.

Apart from Thursday mornings and Sundays once a month, this would create an additional parking area for the town.

Stallholders at the market are also business owners and their businesses need to be protected.
