Letter: When are we going to cancel the Fourth in Bristol?

Posted

I am writing this letter in desperation to get someone’s reply.

When will someone come forward and announce that all activity for the Bristol Fourth of July celebration will be postponed for this year? It is not the decision that should be hart to do, but apparently the announcement is.

It’s a choice of entertainment or public safety. What are we waiting for? Let us tell the bands and other organizations that are involved. It is not one person’s decision, it’s the right decision.
