Circle the Wagons

When I was a kid, the arrival of the fair was something of great excitement and anticipated for weeks…today…apparently, not so much.

I wandered down to the fair in Dunmow this evening…the posters said it would be running until 10.00pm…I arrived around 9.00pm to find everything deserted and in the process of being closed down for the evening, due, no doubt, to lack of custom. The fair is set up in a typical western style circle. In the vicinity, but not using the fair were about 50 youths congregated in a number of groups…it felt like the fair was guarding against an onslaught from the youth.

The fairs here for another week (although only opens again next Thursday, Friday & Saturday). Perhaps the kids are saving their cash for a blow out next weekend…
