  2. Does anyone on this site remember 'The Circus Society' was was set up during the mid 1980's in an attempt to help fight the anti circus campaigns. I am looking to purchase any of the early magazines from the Society to fill the gaps in my magazine collection. IF anyone has any magazines they wish to get rid of, please send me a message with your prices etc.

    Social Media Posts

    I must admit that its nice for all the info to be in one place here. I tried facebook but its not for me. There is a lot of negative energy circulates on social media sites which has a lot to answer for in modern day society. I think this site is very friendly and it is good that the team keeps it happy and safe on here. I too like the team made mistakes in the past. me with some of my early posts.I was a member here from 2006 not the later year like my profile says.(just for the record) Its best to ignore any negative energy and do not respond to it then it does not escalate.

  22. Dear Members It has been suggested that we can improve our Funfair Reports by allowing added text. The Team have listened, discussed and think that the suggestion has advantages - improved readability and more use when archived. We would like the basic concept to stay the same - that is a list of Rides with their Owners, but if you wish to add some text before or after the list then we think this will enhance our reports. This is NOT compulsory. The following is given as suggestions - Background, the weather, new rides, history, level of business etc We would also like to take this opportunity to remind Members who post Funfair Reports that using the template supplied and sticking to the format used has massive advantages for US ALL. We have reports going back twenty years and if we all stick to the same format, we have a much greater chance of finding what we seek when using the "Search" facility on the site. Please try to keep an eye on spelling in particular. If you have any suggestions for further improvements to the Funfair Reports, or indeed any part of the forum, please let a member of the Team know. Lastly, a MASSIVE THANK YOU to all those members who supply Funfair Reports and content for the site! The Team
