It seems that, once again, York’s traditional Carousel ride may struggle to find a pitch if coronavirus restrictions are eased next month.
The ride proved to be very popular before Christmas when it was located on Parliament Street.
So far, “Make it York” has failed to guarantee its traditional location on Kings Square where food stalls are being given priority.
There is adequate alternative space available on St Sampson’s Square and Parliament Street although, so far, Make it York has allocated the site near Marks and Spencer’s for use by a drinkers tent.
We think it would be a shame if this family attraction was ditched in favour of the alcohol economy.
“Make it York” should agree an appropriate site with the Carousel owners.
