Council lacks foresight

I would like to congratulate Ron Young and all who assisted in keeping tradition going another year in the roasting of the ox at this years Houghton feast.

People come from far and wide for this event.

It’s a pity that Sunderland City Council has not got the same foresight when it decided to scrap the horticultural show, which has been part of the feast celebrations now for many a year.

People came from all over the North to show their exhibits, helping to put Houghton on the map.

I know we have a DH postcode but allegedly we are part of Sunderland – sometimes you wouldn’t think so.
