And this is Sally's post, from her Facebook page, for all those who don't have FB so were unable to access her link above, which I've re-tyrped, as I was not able to copy and paste it from the FB page..

Sophie Braithwaite's email to Sally (The Lemonade Lady)

>>>>Dear Sally,

Thank you for your application to cater at this year's festival.

There has been an amazing amount of interest so allocating pitches has been tough. Unfortunately, we didn't find one that would suit your set up this year, but would encourage you to keep in contact as set ups and situations often change.

Have a wonderful summer season.

Kind regards
Sophie Braithwaite<<<<<

John Braithwaite's email to Sophie:

>>>>"Sorry not to reply to your message. Yes, what you have done is just fine.

Oddly enough this is one we would probably never have back because she is a pain in the........argues about pitch fees etc. Now we have Salcombe with floats and the cafe with drinks in Blackmore we don't need her."<<<<

This is at the bottom of the post on Sally's FB page. I'm presuming it's a comment from Sally, herself.

"This is what can happen to a trader when they try to negotiate a pitch fee... we don't get it! Or is it what happens when you accidentally on purpose forget to delete the carbon copy in your email?"

Sorry, John, but what a truly foul way to treat someone, particularly when Sally's been Sidmouth's Lemonade Lady for so many years..

I was told about this a short while ago today, by some friends who've come down for Sidmouth. I couldn't believe it, when I heard. Sadly, I do now.

It stinks.
