Caribbean venue just not suitable
Further to your article regarding holding the Caribbean night on the Ham, as a local resident to the Ham, I can’t believe anybody would be considering this location.
It is stated up to 2000 people may attend - the local infrastructure could not cope with this.
On previous occasions when it was held at the Knowle, the level of noise could be heard all over the town. The Knowle is a much larger area, and allows the noise to dissipate. The Ham is a much smaller area, and the cliff face along the length of the river that abuts the Ham is in a very fragile condition; the high level of decibels that will be emitting from the night, will be rebounding off the cliff face, and could cause further damage to this fragile surface.
Please reconsider the location of this event.
