Long live OnionFest

I CONFESS to having giggled when reading your recent article about the letter of ‘complaint’ re this year’s OnionFest.

As a former resident of the village, I am not in the least surprised, though nonetheless horrified, by the selfishness from which the letter has come. Stedham is a strange place, though not entirely inhabited by narrowminded Daily Mail readers ... ummm ... no ... not entirely.

I wish Mr Jones all the luck in the world and hope very much the festival and the good works it supports will continue for many many years to come.

PS: If it is of any reassurance at all to the organisers, my home on School Lane was, although admittedly not inhabited by sick, frail or dying people at the time, never at any time rendered unusable.
