Today Shropshire Council made the wrong decision. I fear it will damage trade in Ludlow over the next week. This is Mayfair week. It is the greatest spectacle in town. I love the arrival of the rides on Wednesday afternoon and evening. For the biggest rides, it takes a good while to get through the chicane between the historic Buttercross and Bodenhams. People line the streets to watch. The fair brings excitement and life to the town and attracts thousands of visitors. The problem we face this year is that Ludford Bridge will be closed.
