Saturday June 6th was town day in the Burgess Hill Summer Festival program. This occasion includes a parade through the town centre which this year carried the theme of science, discoveries, and innovation.
Occording to the Mid Sussex Times website the parade opener was a mascot race run down Church Road featuring, among others, Eagles Alice and Peter from Crystal Palace FC. Burgess Hill is part of South London, who knew?
Getting to my point, where was the invite for Gordon the Gorilla? How ignorant of the organisers to not invite Gordon to participate. Having a mascot race without Gordon is like Pancake day without Jif Lemon. Gordon has enjoyed his share of media coverage over the years as well as being a predominate part of the Burgess Hill Uncovered website.
So why was Gordon excluded? Surely it couldn't be because Gordon represents a website that isn't afraid to point out some of the shortfallings of Burgess Hill, could it?
If that is not the case, then I'd love to know the reason why festival organisers didn't send an invite Gordon's way.
