There is integration but we need to work on it and be understanding and drop the us and them rubbish attitude. If no one other than white middle class has joined your club maybe ask yourselves why and not blame the minorities for not joining.

I have just seen a big markee where the play park is destined to go or is it the reason why some think it should be where the garden is beside of the TI office, so in future years they can still erect the markee beside the bowling green.

So keep the gorilla theme and the free publicity going and have a gorilla fancy dress competition or something along those lines. Lots of suggestions on Eyes of Dawlish thread. Including one that Gary the G should be put on a trailer and lead the carnival parade on Friday.
