    Very sorry to read this. Over the years I’ve become a big fan of Carters, having visited the fair a couple of times at Pinkneys Green and also at Weston-Super-Mare. I’ve also had the pleasure of going to the open day at their base at White Waltham near Maidenhead a few years ago.
    I hope they find a suitable buyer and remain based in the South of England.

    Haven't been for several years, will have to pull my finger out and make sure I cross paths with it this season. I hope the collection stays together, and yes very much agree that Statfold could be the ideal home with the engineering expertise to keep it operational and the space to show it off and store it undercover.

    I think wherever it goes it will be a disappointment. While I understand the reasons, it will just become another vintage fairground collection, which which is a huge shame as part of the attraction and USP was it is out on the road.
