Market traders are demanding their money back after a fake fun day was set up for a reality TV show.
Around 15 traders set up stalls at Heene Community Centre in Worthing on Sunday after a charity fun day promising a bustling market was advertised.
The afternoon, dubbed “Sunny Worthing’s Spring Into Summer Charity Family Funday”, enticed revellers with a BBQ, face painting, bouncy castle, Punch and Judy show, raffle and a cake baking competition.
But within two hours of starting, the event was unmasked as a cover for the filming of a new reality TV show starring Ashley Banjo from dance group Diversity, the 2009 Britain’s Got Talent winners.
What a shocking reflection on our society.
These people, Sky, have shown that they have complete and total disregard for those traders who unfortunately became involved in this sham, and that they quite obviously consider market traders themselves as nothing more than a disposable resource, to be used as “set dressing” as and when required.
How this was allowed to take place in the first place is beyond me, the council must have been involved in the planning permission process of this event, certainly if filming was involved.
Anyone involved in this, who actively sought real market traders to become involved, knowing it was a production setup, needs to look very closely at their own moral values.
