THE BAND ON THE^PARADE^ To the Editor of the RHYL RECORD & ADVEETISEB. SIB,âTravelling as I do over that portion of England from which come the bulk of our summer visitors, will you allow me space to lay before your readers some considerations conclusive (as I think) that if our Commissioners do not, as it seems is their intention, have a band they will ruin the town. For the last two jears when on my journeys I have had many people congratulate me on the fact that by the provision of a good band Rhyl was at last "making up," and making an effort to compete with other watering places, and now it seems after putting the town to the expense of a new band stand, &c., &c., all in the interest of a couple of private undertakings' our Commissioners are about to ignore the interests of the general body of the ratepayers and for the coming season try the c-^ariment" of doing with- out a band on the Parade. Now, it is argued that this should be done be- cause the Pier and the Winter Gardens cannot be made to pay if there is a competing band on the Parade. Well, why do not the folks who manage these two undertakings make their attractions so superior to that of the promenade band that people will go and patronize them. It seems to be for- gotten that people come to Rhyl for out door recreation, they get plenty of music hall entertain- ments at home. Besides, just look at the pavilion on the Pier, it sadly wants renovating, to say the least of it, and it is no wonder visitors will draw disgraceful comparisons between it and the one at Llandudno. This argument is one for levelling down, and amounts to this, that the Pier Company and the proprietor of the Winter Gardens viitualiy Isay to the Commissioners, "We can't make our concerns pay if you compete with a good band on the Parade.. Now, if you will take away your band we can put ou u cheap show that will pay us." But, sir, what is to become of the town fAre our Commissioners elected in the interests ot the town or of these two private ventures ? I don't believe in levelling down, let us rather put the best possible band on the Parade, and let it give sacred concerts on Sunday evenings, and then in time we shall see the her Company and Winter Gardens will find they will have to raise the character of tneir enter- tainments and they will prosper too. This is a really serious question, and one I hope the ratepayers will seriously take to heart. I am obliged to be away so much or 1 should try and get a town s meeting to take up this matter before the next Board meeting. Will not some one see that this is done ? It has already been mentioned to me in the Potteries that if we have not a good band at Rhyl the folks will go elsewhere, as they say the band is the only good amusement. Sir, there are I fear, some of our Commissioners who have direct or indirect interests which lead them to the course they appear to contemplate. If this be so let each ratepayer make up his or her mind not to vote for one candidate at the coming election who will not pledge himself to go in for a good band on the Promenade, otherwise at the end of the coming season it will be found that in spite of the growing prosperity of the country generally Rhyl has had a worse season than ever.âYours tiuly, Albert Vaults, WIT.
