It's true about the marks on the grass being made by the craft tent last year. there was a plastic sheet laid down with rush matting ontop. the grass was wet and didn't a chance to dry out before the hot weather kicked in. the grass rotted beneath the sheet. it also happened in the marquee on the ham; don't you remember the foul smell? I would have thought the park keeper/council could have made a better job of repairing it tho. why didn't they returf it? it looked as tho they had just left nature to mend it. we traders aren't allowed to drive on the grass so all goods have to be trucked across to the craft marquee by sack trucks, trollies etc. I have to unhitch my trailer at the gate and man/woman-handle it into position. I can understand that the ground could be ploughed up in very wet weather, so i'm not complaining.
