WHAT a change to see a letter in favour of a Weymouth event; the only ones that seem to have been published so far were from moaners.

I went on my bike to see the Ironman last year and thought it was a good event, and brought lots of money to many businesses in the area.

But do we hear from the ones that benefitted from the many visitors and those that really enjoyed the spectacle?

No. It is only one day and roads in the countryside closed for a few hours; we have ample warning of road closures, but some people are incapable of organising their lives to suit and want to ban all fun events in the area in case they can’t get their cars out for half a day. Get a life and go out to see the amazing people doing the Ironman/woman.
