As many of you, if not all, are aware, this weekend just gone saw the Promenade Stages Rally staged at New Brighton.
I have this morning looked through the local free press and there is not one mention about it!
I spoke to quite a few spectators on Saturday, who stumbled upon the Rally by accident as it wasn't publicised in the local press. Some would have even volunteered to marshal had they known about it!
Now I know it is not everybody's cup of tea, but surely something that brings revenue and many visitors from outside the area deserves SOME mention, even if it is just one paragraph.
I remember many many years ago when I first got interested in what was then the Sprint, it was splashed on the back pages and inside a few weeks before the actual event itself, and once over, it got a decent sized write up.
I personally think this is a shame as it is a great day out for people of all ages. Not only that, but as New Brighton is changing and being redeveloped, surely good publicity such as the Rally should be exploited.
The newspapers focus on so much bad News
, maybe this was an opportunity missed to print some good News
for a change
