    Not really.

    The classic ZHC is treating what are essentially full time staff, as freelancers.

    The litter pick is temporary work... it's finite, unlike working in retail or hospitality.

    Damn, how did I sleep on Ho99o9? They look amazing! And now I have a genuine Glastonbury 2017 regret :(.

    (video is potentially a bit disturbing)

    email received from GFEL says that there was an 80% reduction in abandoned tents and the Love The Farm crew stopped 6750 people from peeing on the land

    It was really noticeable how much tidier the farm was on the Monday. I was a bit :eek: tbh.

    It's easy. You just let em know that you've seen them

    Doesn't stop people pissing on our front of house and claiming they can't see a toilet...

    Get a big spotlight and if that doesn't work, electrify your fence.

    Unfortunately electrified herras is off the menu for West Holts.

    It's not something I have to encounter too much to be thankful but it's amazing the way I can pretty much guarantee if we have to retrieve a sound desk at 1/2am there will generally be a pisser there. And it is genuinely a longer walk from the path than the bloody toilets. .

    80%??? That's great :) but I'm surprised the reduction was quite that high. I was struck myself by the smaller number of abandoned tents on Monday, but there still seemed a fair few around ...

    Also, I reckon Shangri La's theme this year could have hit home with plenty, more than the official messages.

    Not getting up to endure "ticket panic" this morning. Which is nice.

    True. But I'd have endured it to be going next year!

    Just re-watching the highlights from 2017 on i-Player. Is that you in the Earache Tube Stage at 1.14 in, William of Walworth?

    I've no idea .... :confused: that's because I'm not signed in to iPlayer on this PC, and signing up is what you now need it seems :mad:

    I'll try to remember to sort out that when I have time ... :hmm:
