The online publication of the Dartmouth Chronicle’s front page has attracted dozens of comments in favour of Woofstock UK, a dog festival held in the town, and angry reaction to comments made by a town councillor and director of the visitor centre.
Gina Coles had told the Chronicle she had done a “rain dance’, in the hope of blighting the one-day event of Coronation Park. She also said organiser Heather Nesbitt was “not the right sort” to hold the festival.
Among those commenting on social media was Lucy Willetts, the Chronicle’s Stoke Fleming village correspondent.
She said: “Disgusting woman ... ignore her Harry Nesbitt ... absolutely every single person I’ve spoken to without fail thinks it was a brilliant event - it was so well organised and more importantly well attended - thus bringing seriously much needed business into the town! As someone already said - Gina Coles should stand down - she’s a disgrace (not to mention clueless!!).
Karen Fletcher said: “We all had a fabulous day. Heather And Carol done an absolutely brilliant job. So many thanks to you my friends. What you guys done for Dartmouth is outstanding. Truly no words. Professional, outstanding day. Proud to not just know you but love you, and call you my friends.
Woofstockuk rocks!! Xxx”
