Messrs Penhaligon and Morgan are either missing, or else carefully avoiding, the main point, which is that the `fringe' seems to think it has the right to impose its activities on everyone within earshot, whether everyone else (i.e. the vast majority) likes it or not.

If you feel strongly (as I know that many residents in Priory Park do), you should write at once to the licensing officer of Malvern Hills District Council, Phil Browning, and/or to your local MP, Sir Michael Spicer, making your views known.
