Jumpers and Jazz festival co-founder calls for unity

TOGETHER as a community we can make Jumpers and Jazz work.

That's the message from one of the festival's original co-founders - Lyn Bryson.

The Bryson's Place coffee shop owner has been involved with the festival since day one and she's sad to see it in the state it's in.

"I love Jumpers and Jazz, I love the people of Warwick but we've got to make this work," she said.

"We've not a mob of two-year-olds. Grow up. We can do this."

As one of the biggest business owners involved in the festival, Mrs Bryson said she would like to see more business participation.

"It's not necessarily just business. As a community we can work together," she said.

Mrs Bryson has called for a community meeting about the festival.

"There are lots of creative and talented people out there who could help and organise," she said.

"It'd be amazing to see who would come forward."

Despite all the controversy, the Jumpers and Jazz lover is positive about the future.

"We mightn't have as much money but we could make it work," she said.

"Listening to people in the shop you get the feeling people want the festival to continue."
