We were overburdened by lack of parking at Food and Wine Festival in Pevensey

Congratulations to Wealden on their Food and Wine Festival.

However, despite arriving at Pevensey Castle soon after 11am on Sunday, my husband and I found the car park full and were directed down the road to a car park at Pevensey Bay, where we could pick up a bus back to the Castle.

As we are elderly pensioners, he is 86 and I am 79, we feel we couldn’t manage the problems we might encounter in both the journey to park the car, and presumably returning by bus to collect the car. Could not have arrangements for sufficient parking been made adjacent to the festival?

We chose to abandon the festival and spend a couple of hours touring the coast.

Perhaps next time, when organising an event of this nature, someone could also include parking arrangements at the site.
