  1. No we don't get lanyards we get village passes for the cars and village pass for villagers car park.
  2. A361 is busy but not a problem. from May to July it is busier due to the festival infrastructure being moved in and out. Trapped in the Tuesday Wednesday before the festival and Monday after, they are supposed to keep the side roads clear for local traffic but..........
  3. Moved to Pilton last year, like you we have family living in Shepton. best move we made people are friendly and welcoming. Really nice relaxed unstressful village will a proper village community. went home every night from the festival I will admit it felt strange but it being a muddy year it made a big difference being able to have a hot shower and your own bed. village has The Crown pub which gladly has reopened recently, new owners are finding there feet so would be rude to comment at the moment. The working mans club is very welcoming and also has regular bands playing and of course you will get to see the emerging talent auditions and also the Pilton Party auditions. good schools nearby (we have no children) we are told. we go for a wander over Worthy farm when we want (except for when it's a no go area during the festival build) which is lovely. the only minus is no local shop and bus service is every 2 hours Monday to Saturday with no evening busses, car is essential. Please feel free to message me if you need more information and I will gladly help. sorry post a bit rushed but hope it makes sense
  4. @Sawdusty Surfer I am in all week if I can help more than happy to.
  5. Happy birthday Lucy, hope you had a fab day.
  6. Hi hope everyone got out and home safely. phew this year was hard work body finally gave up late Sunday afternoon so had to go home on the plus side really enjoyed the meet was lovely to put names to faces and catch up with everyone. got a cold and feeling knackered, few days rest and a good nights sleep will sort. Speak soon hugs X
  7. Saw loads being refilled also we take our own, festival must have in my opinion.
  8. Security outside our house has told us they have drafted in 4x4's and tractors from surrounding farmers. Hope everyone gets out safe and home safe.
  9. So agree, nailed it
  10. Basically weather messed car parks up camper and cars came together tougher checks people using side roads and blocking things up organisers say please follow signs and do not use sat nav. If they asked people to come later would they??
  11. Just walked outside, they have turned the searchlight on at the meeting point ITS OFFICIALALY GLASTONBURY
  12. Safe travels everyone have a fantastic festival leave all troubles at the gate and hopefully forget to pick them up when you leave. Doubt I will make the meet Thursday as going to the Bowie tribute hopefully see you at efests meet Wednesday.
  13. Well said, let's hope people use them, would be terrible to be robbed and have a horrible festival.
  14. Just so people know there is a no stopping or parking order in force along the roads to the festival will a £100 fine being enforced. Security is tight this year even the village is being enforced by parking officers.
  15. All ok here, so glad I finally finished sorting the drains out last week. site slightly moist going down again tomorrow and I am sure lake worthy will of dissipated to puddles. As PD said a few lightning strikes around site work has been suspended this afternoon and traffic vastly reduced. Dont forget to pack your sombrero and factor 50 ooh no more wet stuff has fallen this evening
