NOT one to normally complain I feel I must.

Expecting a nice day out I was misled by the advertising of a Country Show. As a keen visitor of many I travelled from Wisbech to the one held at Littleport on Sunday with my grandchildren expecting to see some country delights. I was very disappointed. The fun and car-boot fair should not have been advertised as a country show and after 17 minutes I was so disgusted that I demanded a refund and left. Where were the usual country show attractions? All I saw were car booters, funfair rides and charity people and fast-food units. The only one thing that made it a country show was the sign on the road. Country show it was not and Littleport should be ashamed of the blatant way it misled people.
