Trouble is, these funfairs seem inevitably to cause huge damage to the Green, which even at the best of times could use a bit of love and attention.
What with a daily distribution of litter, a generous helping of winos, and now ash dieback killing the trees, the last thing Shepherd's Bush Green needs is huge lorries to smash up the pathways and the turf even more.

How much does the Council get paid for these funfairs - and is it really worth it, given the damage they cause?
And why doesn't the Council insist that the funfair owners repair the damage they before they leave? It's probably in the contract, but it doesn't look like anyone is bothering much about enforcement.
Maybe what's needed is someone to organise the Friends of Shepherd's Bush Green to fight for this corner of green space in our Borough. Any volunteers?
