Pride given grant but not festival 

Dear Sir, — Can someone please explain why Cheshire East Council has supplied the LGBT+ Pride In The Park event with sponsorship but will not help with a grant to allow a free music festival to take place in Alsager?
The music festival has been going from strength to strength for 10 years and attracts over 5,000 visitors. 
This is an all-inclusive festival that attracts a wide section of the community. This is a wonderful example of the local people and the Round Table working together to give the wider public a wonderful experience. — Yours faithfully,

BRIAN PEARCE-JERVIS
