Magenta Appel-Pye, Mullumbimby
I was surprised by David Morris’s letter last week and his attack on the Seniors Festival. Whilst I tend to agree with him that ‘this town breeds festivals like maggots in a dead dog’ (his words, not mine), I found it incredulous that of all the festivals that got his goat enough to write a letter to the editor was the Seniors Festival! I consider it to be one of the three truly community raising and important festivals in our shire, along with Harmony Day on 21 March, also free, and Renew Fest in Mullumbimby in May.
I have entertained at the Mayor’s Morning Tea with my senior’s ukulele group and found it an extremely uplifting, honouring and entertaining morning. Not to mention that it was free. It was a jolly good day out. Maybe Mr Morris could consider going, because he needs to have a bit of fun.
